    Artemis not found after Scanning Container.

    elanman

      Last night I inadvertantly downloaded an Artemis Trojan inpite of scanning the file with Virus scann (Mcafee Anti virus and anti spyware V18.0 build 18.0.9019 engine 2636)

       

      When I opened the file Mcafee notified me that it had detected unwanted software several times and I confirmed the request to quarantine each time when I performed a full scan with no threats detected, However mt DVD drive had been renamed as the E drive and there was a D drive with 0 bytes of 643 free and several unfamiliar programes appeared ,so being a suspicious so-n-so i restored my system to a earlier configuration and re-insalled Mcafee total protection. A new full scan revealed trojans:-

      PUP-RGQV

      Artemis!237AAA173D67

      Artemis!AB798F6DF51B

      Artemis!237AAA173D67

      Artemis!AB798F6DF51B

      All of which were then quarantined and deleted I then shredded the downloaded file.

       

      Am I expecting to much of Mcafee?

       

      Does the fact that Mcafee didn't find the trojan before it was reinstalled indicate that Mcafee had been compromised and is this something I need to tell Mcafee about and how?

       

      Are there any other procedures to check a downloaded file for threats?

       

      I kknow these questions may be naive but this is the first occasion that Mcafee has really failed me in 10 years.
