Hello,

Are running the SEP 12.1 client with latest definitions and carry all the latest Microsoft updates and security patches on the machine?

The symptoms sounds like W32.SillyFDC to me.

Run a scan in safe mode with networking to remove the virus.

Also, disable System Restore before you do this as the virus alse creates entries in the System Restore Points store volumes.

Additionally, Disable Autoplay for ALL DRIVES Via a GPO (If you're on a domain), and also disable SImple File Sharing if it's enabled to prevent the infection from propogating itself by binding to files.

Secondly, Submit these files to the Symantec Security Response and they will get detected.

Using Symantec Support Tool, how do we Collect the Suspicious Files and Submit the same to Symantec Security Response Team.

Hope that helps!!

Not to Worry, its an infection which can be healed by Symantec Latest Definition. Just check whether Symantec Scan Engine and its definition is updated, if so just Scan it, it will Clean it. I have faced several such issues.

Hello,

There are useful some tools that are provided by Symantec for help with finding those hard to detect threats.

1.       The Power Eraser Tool eliminates deeply embedded and difficult to remove threats that traditional virus scanning doesn't always detect.

2. The SERT (Symantec Endpoint Recovery Tool)is useful in situations where computers are too heavily infected for the Symantec Endpoint Protection client installed upon them to clean effectively.

3. The Load point Analysis Tool generates a detailed report of the programs loaded on your system. It is helpful in listing common loadpoints where threats can live.
