Microsoft warns of malware conflict with update

Jump to solution

Microsoft blog updated today advised that BSODs caused by applying the MS Patch is related to malware present on the system.  Can anyone advise what this malware is? Or is this speculation on MS part for now?

Reference: http://blogs.technet.com/msrc/default.aspx

“…In our continuing investigation in to the restart issues related to MS10-015 that a limited number of customers are experiencing, we have determined that malware on the system can cause the behavior. We are not yet ruling out other potential causes at this time and are still investigating…”

Digging deeper within the MS pages doesn’t yield a malware name in reference to this.

Appreciate any advice.

I cannot fing any McAfee information about this issue.

It looks like McAfee should detect it as variant of DNSChanger or TDSS

That's great! Thank you.

Looking at rootkits infecting atapi.sys it's most likely to be TDSS.a!mem (http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_252858.htm).  It gives me something to go with anyway.

Cheers.
