Hello all - I just want to share this information with you.  It worked for me, but no guarantees...

We have a couple of older P4 systems (XP SP3 32-bit) with the Intel 865PE chipset and ICH5 controller.   We couldn't boot from the SERT CD on these systems - got a boot error 5 - probably has something to do with the older chipset and WinPE.

So, here's what we did to boot from a USB memory stick

First follow the instructions in TECH131578 -

with the following exception in Step 6....

I. BACKGROUND:
We have been receiving a few scattered cases of outbreaks from a file labeled snkb00ptz.exe or snkb0ptz.exe, but it seems to be on the rise.

It's normally considered poor troubleshooting to use the file name for any type of identification of a threat, but recent examples have made this practical. Even though these files were detected as many different threat names and families (Trojan.gen, w32.IRCBot.NG, Downloader, etc), the cases all reported the same behavior and symptoms.

After some additional investigation, Symantec Security Response has broken out detection for W32.Inabot. That's short for the Insomnia IRC bot. More information is available from the makers of this threat in their manual, here: http://pastebin.com/dvpu8Zwb

For those of you familiar with W32.Changeup,...

If the 12.1 client istallation fails, look for the keyword "startrollback.sis" in the SIS_INST.LOG.

The reason for the failure of the installation would be last action performed before the rollback started and it would be found in the lines just above the result found for the keyword searched.

Example: In this example the installation failed as the start menu shortcut couldn't be created.

Symantec keeps tab on the changing Threat Landscape and incorporates relevant security on its products.Same is the story with SAV to SEP to now SEP 12..

When we had SAV in the market what our customer needed was just a Antivirus to protect their system from downtime..here antivirus was looked more as a Availability facilitator than a core security product..till early 2000.

Even though we had SCS (firewall and IPS) seclected people used the other features.

Starting from 2006-2007 that was a high rise in malware being created and vulnerabilities being exploited..slowly the trend changed and it all came down to money making malwares..

FakeAntivirus, Downadup, Various Blackmailing Trojans etc..here the audience was not high profile..and SEP 11 very well detect and blocks and does whatever it can..Slowly people started using IPS, ADC and found much more can be done with SEP and they are doing it..

However in last few years there has been...

I. BACKGROUND:
In mid-2009, W32.Changeup, was first discovered on systems around the world. Over the last few years, Symantec Security Response has profiled this threat, explained why it spreads, and shown how it was created.  Since November 2012 we have seen weekly spikes the number of W32.Changeup detections and infections. The increase in detections is a result of a renewed W32.Changeup campaign now active and in-the-wild.

 

II. THREAT DETAILS:
When a system is compromised, W32.Changeup may install additional malware. These secondary threats have the ability to download even...

According to Symantec's 2011 Internet Security Threat Report, the sheer number of attacks has soared 81% since 2010, reaching 5.5 billion. Malware, in particular, is a major source of concern. Malware authors have shifted tactics, away from mass distribution of a single strain that hits millions of PCs, to a micro distribution model where far more unique variants are created. To combat this problem and help organizations cope with a constantly changing and ever-complex threat landscape, Symantec will release Endpoint Protection 12.1.2 later this year. This solution is built on an eco-system of security technologies, including new behavioral and reputation-based protection.
