Bamital.c and master boot record MSE

By Scorge
Aug 17, 2010
  1. The new definitions for MSE, they were only 2 days out of date.

    Anyway MSE detected bamital.c in three files explorer, firefox and wininit

    While trying to clean it with MSE I got a BSOD and on reboot found that I had to repair windows as it looked like the MBR had been corrupted.

    I used MBAM, S&D, HJT, MBRCheck, OTL, combofix, securitycheck. Nothing looked suspicious or came back as infected. I wasn't. getting any browser redirects, or much of anything else for that matter.

    I have come to the conclusion that either MSE caught a false positive, or there is a new strain of bamital in the wild that infects the MBR.
