Question about detection trends
So I just did a removal today on a client's system, and they got lucky because they immediately noticed there was a problem and shut the system down.
I fired it up and removed it pretty easily, since it didn't have a chance to get its hooks too deep into the registry.
They infection date was actually the 5th, but he kept the notebook turned off since then. So we're dealing with a virus at least 3 to 4 days old.
So I submit it to Virustotal.
4 out of 38.
Now, I'm relatively new here, so I don't know what's par for the course yet, but speaking as someone who spends half his time removing viruses and spyware, that's frightening.
Is that about average? 4 days old and only 10% detection rate?
No wonder we're so fucked.
Cool site you've got here, btw. You guys have Feeds set up for the blog posts yet?
