      i´m using Brazilian portuguese version on McAfee Security Center and after a scheduled scan it has found:

          Edit - Moved again, into Artemis Discussion. There's also a duplicate post for this question; that thread will be locked.

            I can't find any information about this detection, so you may need to send anything that's been quarantined by the scan to McAfee for analysis to make sure that this is not a false detection. See this document for details of what to do.

              This is malicous file and is getting detected as "PWS-Banker!gxt" with current updates.


              This is a Trojan detection. Unlike viruses, Trojans do not self-replicate. They are spread manually, often under the premise thatthey are beneficial or wanted. The most common installation methodsinvolve system or security exploitation, and unsuspecting usersmanually executing unknown programs. Distribution channels includee-mail, malicious or hacked Web pages, Internet Relay Chat (IRC),peer-to-peer networks, etc.


              such kind of trojan shows activity such as attempts to write to a memory location of a Windows system process, enumerates many system files and directories, Adds or modifies Internet Explorer cookies.


              Please use the following instructions for all supported versions of Windows to remove threats and other potential risks:


              1.Disable System Restore (Windows ME/XP only).


              2.Update to current engine and DAT files for detection and removal.


              3.Run a complete system scan.


              Modifications made to the system Registry and/or INI files for the purposes of hooking system startup, will be successfully removed if cleaning withthe recommended engine and DAT combination (or higher).


              General repair may be unsuccessful in some instances. If this occurs, please submit a sample for further evaluation.

                Hello!  I am wildfire and I am also having an Artimus problem.  McAfee did not detect it but Stinger did. I will copy the name of the file.  It is :

                C:\Program Files (x86)\BellSouth Application Management\bin\McciControlInstaller_DDR.exe\2.nsis


                Stinger found Artimus!DCB15374E733 trojan.  This file cannot be repaired.


                How do I get rid of this without losing internet  access altogether?  I am operating in safe mode now, and the screen resolution is not  very  good.  I hope I have recounted the exact  listing of Stinger's findings.


                My McAfee is up to date as are my Windows updates.  I am running Windows Vista Premium 64-bit.  I hope I have told  you enough information so that you can help me.  Please reply!!!!

                Thank You,

                Janet  Woods

                  Hello Janet,


                  Thanks for your report. I have checked the file in question and it is not malicious. It has been further analyzed and added to our database as a clean file. Please confirm what is the Stinger version you are using. You can do this by clicking on the "About" menu. We recommend you to download the lastest version, available at http://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/free-tools/stinger.aspx , and perform a new scan.


                  Best Regards,

                  Patty Ammirabile
