    Got Hit by "Avanish" malware, missed by W10 security


    In the past some folks came hard on me for pointing out the deadly security
    ineffectiveness of W10. Here is a proof.

    A malware by the name "Avinash" brought the speed of my PC to a crawl
    WINDOWS SECURITY ran twice and declared the system sound safe.

    I was not satisfied so I initiated my own Malware Software protection namely
    HITMAN PRO, in minutes it detected and quarantined the Malware AVANISH
    and its roots to include an EXE file : "Anachronism.ksee".

    At this point I was happy , but noticed the Malware still showing up in my startup list ,
    though I have disabled them ( Nine of the same name Avinash), still showing up in my task list , Hitman Pro announced they are disabled.

    My questions for the guru that I wish can help are:

    1. Is there a way to remove the malware name from the "startup list".
    2. How to stop/eliminate the ,Malware (Avinash) in/from the process list.
    3. How to search and delete any hidden traces even inactive
    4. Did Anyone (MS included ) raise a flag about this Malware threat?

    The following are the remnant names of the malware "Avinash":

    Avinash

    buaqIjva ( it could be a capital "I" or a lower case "L")

    Anachronism .. and others that got rid by Hitman Pro .

    I did Google "Avinash".. but there was no mention to any Malware, but revealed a
    SW security researcher by the name "Avinash" .

    It's either AVANISH or AVINASH. You refer to both, but neither come up in a Google search (except this thread) suggesting you must be the only person to be afflicted with this.

    I would suggest using another antivirus to see if that gets shut of the malware from startup, try malwarebyte there pretty good or sophos which if I’m right is the developer of hitman pro.

    Glary utilities has a startup remover
    Before you do can we have a pic of your start up list?

    A number of viruses have different names so I wouldn't discount it just because it can't
    be found on the web under that name.

    as for antiviral nothing is 100% . I use Norton backed up by Malwarebytes.

    Hi.
    Not familiar with that infection, sorry.
    You could try running ADWCleaner - scan then clean.
    Post the logs here for us to have a look at.

    Here's another good one to try:

    Using "Anachronism.ksee" in my search, this is what I found: https://www.hybrid-analysis.com/samp...ironmentId=120

    You are correct, i mixed up the name: It's " Avinash" as it shows in my startup list. Perhaps you are right, I am the first one, but I am certain will not be the only one for long. The threat is TRUE and I took me a dire time to rid off.

    Given the extent of the infection,if you have a backup,e.g. Macrium,then wipe the drive using DBAN and clean install.

    Hitman Pro Anti malware did effectively shot down and stopped it from messing up with the system's speed , trouble is, it left its remnant in the startup list which I manually disabled, but could not delete from the list.
