SAS and everything related BLOCKED!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

something really weird has happened to my machine.

SAS is not working anymore, at all!

- If I launch the SAS.exe, nothing happens

- same thing if I try to launch the INSTALLER file back again (after unistalling obviously)

- same if try to reach the WWW.SUPERANTISPYWARE.COM web site: I am immediately redirected to the MSNAUTOSEARCH site, like if I were looking for an unexistent web page!

Looks like everithing contains the SUPERANTISPYWARE word is blocked on my machine.

From a different machine, with the same DSL connection, everything works fine.

Tried to check firewall or blocked web site, but all the settings looks fine.

Any idea?

Thanks

Filippo

Have you tried renaming the principle SAS executable

SUPERAntiSpyware.exe to say qwerty.exe to see if it runs?

FAO Nick looks like your a victim of your own success at kicking malware butt.

BTW Gromozon was blocking SAS from running a few weeks back IRC but renaming allowed the software to run.

HTH :)

Yes, it runs!!!

How can I get rid of this problem?

How can I access the SAS web site back again?

Thanks a million!

Boot into safe mode and run SAS full system scan from there.Allow it to kill anything it finds.

I strongly suspect you have a very recent(less than 48hrs old) CWS/VX infection which has got a grudge with SAS for being so effective against it recently.The malware coders are trying to take SAS out of the equation :shock::evil:

:lol: Ironically as i replied earliar on i was in the process of infecting my computer with VX/CWS malware and when i went to reply a second time to your post i also lost access to this site.Subsequent execution of SAS failed.

So i renamed ,booted into safe mode and let it chew about 90% of the infection out.BTW it is one nasty infection,the remainders that SAS did'nt remove have been submitted to Nick S so hopefully he can extradite them into the next definitions update and take down the current infection 100%

Crazy :evil:
