I had "Quibids" popups (and others) happening all over the place. After doing a Google search I was able to find the files and a solution. MAfee did not find any of the infectious files after doing a complete scan. VERY disappointing!!! The folder "Soid Savings" contained the dll and attached itsef to my Browser, IE 10. I had to delete it manually. Is McAfee out of the loop or what????
Moved this to Malware Discussion.
Browser hijackers are not always easy for antivirus software to detect but certain anti-malware products are better equipped to deal with that sort of things because they specialize in such things. See some suggestions in the last link in my signature below.
You could also have submitted samples to McAfee Labs with a view to getting them detected using the GetSusp application mentioned there.
But thanks for reporting it here at least.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 23/05/13 2:45:15 EDT PM
I'm always trying to help fight malware. I'm sorry about not attaching samples. Once found my immediate reaction was to delete them. I found them in "C:\Programs(x86)\Solid Savings" folder. McAffee staff could Google 'Solid Savings Trojan' for more info. I don't mean to be disrespectful but Browser Hijackers are epidemic on the Web. If McAffee can't detect them then what good is McAfee?
Well no antivirus can detect everything out there but McAfee has a pretty good record, see here for an independent opinion: http://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/avc_prot_201304en.pdf
Sorry it didn't help in this particular case. I don't find too much about this except on Spyhunter.
