Security events, also known as infections, which include botnets and viruses, can cause computers to behave strangely and track or steal information. The following common infections are often seen at UB.
Incident: TDSS Rootkit
Infection Tag: TDSS-Rootkit
Your machine was seen communicating with a known botnet.
This particular root kit is hard to remove. Be sure to overwrite the master boot record. Find information on running FIXMBR on Windows 8, 7 or Vista or Windows XP.
Your system is infected with spyware. The software will watch for all form submissions and forward them to a remote website (including SSL submissions).
Your user credentials are compromised. You must change your UBIT password as part of the remediation process. If this is a shared machine, all of the users must change their password; this includes any password on any site you may have accessed (banking, Google, etc).
