I have noted the Mcafee is not able to identify this particular Adobe Exploit secuirty issue that affects home PC. All other Virus Scanners are able to identify the rogue PDF file and stop it from execution. I had sent samples to Mcafee Threat centre via email twice and I have noted that they have not included the PDF file in Artemis for indentification.
The details of the threat are in the link: http://www.pc1news.com/news/1041/exploit-win32-pidief-targeting-adobe.html
I am also attaching a sample file for your review which is password protected.Please do the needfulMessage was edited by: Samantha Price - removing malware sample on 3/8/10 10:31:06 AM CST
I wouldn't say that "all" other products detect it - more that a good proportion of products do. (Refer to the detection matrix at Virustotal for the file - http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/9fe1bf3b1e12f23c32be4ae524883251a75453378ca2f2d6e7c20f6d3cd39d02-... )
I've submitted a similar file previously without response. It appears to be a pidief sample as well (http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/b14fdc227414eb7bea5b052dd1e37f1dc05bec3a288e070dc78f87a60ad34b08-... )
So not sure why the detections aren't being added.
What reference numbers did Avert give you in your Webimmune submission / email submission?
Also, posting samples onto the forum is a *bad thing* .
I removed the attachments that you made in your post. You should never attach possible malware to these, or any other communities because you open up others to infection by doing so. Anybody could have downloaded those without paying attention and accidentally infected themselves.
To submit samples for review, there is a process that can be followed to insure everything gets safely to McAfee Labs. Please see http://vil.nai.com/vil/submit-sample.aspx for how to submit samples.
Thanks for the advice, Samantha.
But the real issue remains unsolved. I had already send the sample via email to Mcafee Threat Centre twice earlier and there is no response to this threat. Is Mcafee really hiding any issues ? Why is that to this particular PDF threat, Mcafee is turrning a blind eye ?
So what happens if you talk and people do not listen. You yell.
Exploit/Win32.Pidief Is Targeting Adobe Vulnerabilities issue remains unresolved after all.
Thanks, I have been informed that my PDF sample will be detected as exploit-pdf.bx!streamMessage was edited by: Mal09 on 12/03/10 22:20:24 GMT
