  1. Hi, a couple days ago I ran Malwarbytes on both of my computers and I found three malware(s) on both. I told malwarbytes to put them in quarantine. My question is, is there anything else I need to do.

    I have attached the logs from malwarbytes. I have a dell Optiplex GX280 and a Dell Dimension 5100. I can list what I know of the system specs if they would help.

    Yes, there is more> You have a malware infection by the Worm.Koobface.

    Koobface is a computer worm that targets users of the social networking websites Facebook It then uses compromised computers to build a peer-to-peer botnet. A compromised computer contacts other compromised computers to receive commands in a peer-to-peer fashion. The botnet is used to install additional pay-per-install malware on the compromised computer as well as hijack search queries to display advertisements
