COMBOFIX, has now been fixed and is again safe to use.

  1. It has recently been discovered, that there is a rootkit in the wild that can cause Combofix to start wiping files from hard drives. Therefore, Combofix has been withdrawn and is not safe to use, until further notice.

    I urge anyone who has a copy of Combofix to delete it from their system immediately.

    Quoted by "sUBs" the author of Combofix:

    I have temporarily stickied this thread, until the situation has been resolved.

    Regards Howard :)
