ZDNet: Defective McAfee update causes worldwide meltdown of XP PCs
Citat:
At 6AM today, McAfee released an update to its antivirus definitions for corporate customers that had a slight problem. And by “slight problem,” I mean the kind that renders a PC useless until tech support shows up to repair the damage manually. As I commented on Twitter earlier today, I’m not sure any virus writer has ever developed a piece of malware that shut down as many machines as quickly as McAfee did today.

Here’s how the SANS Internet Storm Center describes the screw-up:

McAfee’s “DAT” file version 5958 is causing widespread problems with Windows XP SP3. The affected systems will enter a reboot loop and [lose] all network access. We have individual reports of other versions of Windows being affected as well. However, only particular configurations of these versions appear affected. The bad DAT file may infect individual workstations as well as workstations connected to a domain. The use of “ePolicyOrchestrator”, which is used to update virus definitions across a network, appears to have [led] to a faster spread of the bad DAT file. The ePolicyOrchestrator is used to update “DAT” files throughout enterprises. It can not be used to undo this bad signature because affected system will lose network connectivity.

The problem is a false positive which identifies a regular Windows binary, “svchost.exe”, as “W32/Wecorl.a”, a virus.

McAfee now has its own KnowledgeBase page posted, with details about the problem and the fix. The symptoms are described, tersely, as “Blue screen or DCOM error, followed by shutdown messages after updating to the 5958 DAT on April 21, 2010.”

"Take Five" is the famous jazz piece written by Paul Desmond and performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet. It is famous for its distinctive saxophone line and use of the unusual quintuple (5/4) time, from which its name is derived.

To izgleda ulazi u modu. :)

Pre mesec dana Bitdefender je napravio prolećnu salatu na svim 64-bitnim windowsima, a najbolje od svega jeste što je osim explorer.exe i samog sebe bacao u karantin :)


Citat:
It's telling me that BitDefender's own .dlls and such are viruses.
Along with numerous other essential files in system32 and syswow64.
Update is definitely botched. Until its fixed, turn off your realtime protection to save your own computer from deleting itself to death


Citat:
This is happening to me, too. EVERY file that is trying to run is getting quarantined. Windows Explorer and even Bitdefender update itself is being quarantined. Someone really screwed this one up.


Citat:
I'm getting this too. Before I could shut off BitDefender it quarantined most of my system, including BitDefender itself!
What do I do? Most programs do not work. The computer barely booted (did some kind of repair first).
How do I unquarantine the files without BitDefender?

HELP!
