Five free tools to keep your Windows PC running malware-free

It’s a constant battle, the protection of a PC against malicious software. The second you think you have your machine clean, something else appears — no matter what piece of software you use to combat this plague. Even so, you still need to have some protection installed. So I thought I’d list the five tools I prefer for keeping Windows as malware-free as possible. They don’t cost a dime, and they’re about as reliable as a malware removal tool can be.

1: Malwarebytes

This is my go-to tool when there’s a malware issue. It’s fast, it’s always reliable, and it’s free. The only downfall is that there’s no real-time component. For the free version of Malwarebytes to actually be active and scanning, the user must run the tool. Now, if the end user is too lazy (or forgetful), I would suggest purchasing the non-free version, which does contains a real-time component. But the free version is certainly solid. Note that here are instances where the removal of a piece of malware by this tool will require a reboot of the machine.

2: ComboFix

ComboFix is the Mac Daddy of removal tools. It’s also not a standard anti-malware tool so much as it is a major problem-solver. When you have malware that simply won’t go away (and you suspect something a bit uglier — like a rootkit or Trojan — that keeps re-infecting your machine), you want this tool. I recommend ComboFix, but with a warning: It’s powerful. Very powerful. Do not leave the executable for this tool just lying around. Use it and remove it. And unlike most malware removal tools, you (or the end user) won’t be using the PC while this tool is running.

3: Spybot Search and Destroy

Spybot Search and Destroy is one of the most popular anti-malware tools. If there’s a piece of anti-malware software on a machine, it’s probably going to be this one. Now, I will say that SD is not the most powerful of the anti-malware tools, but it’s by far not the worst. I would actually rank it right below Malwarebytes with regard to reliability. And since there is no harm in having two anti-malware tools on one machine (unlike antivirus, which is a big no-no), using Malwarebytes and SD as a one-two punch will catch most every piece of malware. The one thing SD has over the free version of Malwarebytes is that it has a real-time scanner.

4: Avast Free

I like Avast. I like it for antivirus. I like it for anti-malware. The best thing about this tool is that you can have them both, at the same time, for free! Not only is the anti-malware portion of the tool safe and reliable, the antivirus is one of the tops of the free suites. So this one is a win-win for sure. Yes, there are paid versions of the same software suite, offering anti-phishing, safe-shopping, SPAM protection, and the like. But if you’re looking for solid anti-malware and antivirus, just download the free version of Avast.

5: AVG Free

For the longest time, I was a big advocate of AVG Free for antivirus protection. Now? Not so much. AVG Free’s ability to keep viruses at bay is less than stellar. But it does a fairly good job of removing malware. What I like about AVG is that it’s unobtrusive. When a scan is running, you will hardly notice. The big downfall of AVG is that, should you have to run ComboFix, you can’t just turn it off. To run a tool like ComboFix, you actually have to completely remove AVG. That is a real pain.

The safe side

Here’s my honest take: If your machine is a personal (home) machine, slap on AVG Free and Malwarebytes and be done with it. Or if you want an all-in-one tool, use Avast. But always keep a copy of ComboFix around just in case those tools miss out on some of the nastier uglies creeping around. Regardless of which way you go here, just make sure you have (and use) protection. Practice safe computing!

Microsoft fixes critical flaws in Windows and Silverlight

Microsoft today shipped eight security updates that patched 23 vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, .Net Framework, Silverlight and other bits in its portfolio.

Two of the updates were labeled “critical,” Microsoft’s most serious threat ranking, while the other six were rated “important,” the next most severe tag.

All but eight of the vulnerabilities, which were tagged to IE, affected one or more editions of Microsoft’s client or server versions of Windows. Of the 23 total bugs, nine were rated critical, 13 were pegged important and one was marked “moderate.”

Critical bugs

The two critical updates, MS11-081 for IE and MS11-078 for .Net and Silverlight, were the two called out by Microsoft and consistently by outside researchers as the pair to apply first.

“It’s no surprise that IE is at the top of the list,” said Storms. Microsoft typically patches its browser every other month, and last updated IE in August. One of the eight critical vulnerabilities in the IE update affected just IE9, which shipped last March. Microsoft has patched IE9 before today, but this is the first it’s needed to fix a flaw specific to only that edition.

The IE9-only vulnerability is in that edition’s version of a JavaScript DLL (dynamic link library) used by that browser.

As usual, the IE vulnerabilities could be exploited by hackers with a classic “drive-by download” style of attack simply by convincing users to steer for a malicious website.

Other researchers agreed that MS11-081 should be deployed immediately. “Every time you see one of these updates, you need to patch them immediately,” said Jason Miller, of VMware’s research and development team.

Silverlight slipups

The second consensus top-pick was the update for .Net, a Windows-centric software framework, and Silverlight, a Microsoft application framework for content-intensive websites and online applications.

Like the IE update, MS11-078 can be exploited by attackers who dupe users into visiting a malicious website. Worse, the flaw could be exploited by hackers targeting not just IE users, but Mac owners running a browser with the Silverlight plugin, or Windows users running the plugin within Apple’s Safari, Google’s Chrome or Mozilla’s Firefox.

“By my reading of the bulletin, it’s cross-browser and cross-platform,” said Miller.

Microsoft updated its Mac Silverlight plugin separately. Users should immediately download and install the newest version from the Silverlight website.

Storms highlighted MS11-078 if only because of its novelty. “We’re used to the IE bugs, but [MS11-078] has three different attack vectors, and the web hosting one has high potential for exploitation,” Storms said.

“If a web hosting environment allows users to upload custom ASP.NET applications, an attacker could upload a malicious ASP.NET application that uses this vulnerability to break out of the sandbox used to prevent ASP.NET code from performing harmful actions on the server system,” said Microsoft in its accompanying bulletin.

Storms said he could see attackers try to leverage that to compromise servers at an Internet service provider.

Microsoft also returned to the “DLL load hijacking” well this month, Miller and Storms both noted. DLL load hijacking, sometimes called “binary pre-loading,” describes a class of bugs first revealed in August 2010. Microsoft has been patching its software to fix the problem, which can be exploited by tricking an application into loading a malicious file with the same name as a required dynamic link library or DLL, since last November.

So far, said Miller, Microsoft has released 17 security updates to fix DLL load hijacking issues in its software. Miller reminded users that Microsoft published a tool more than a year ago that blocks attacks based on DLL load hijacking.

October’s security patches can be downloaded and installed via the Microsoft Update and Windows Update services, as well as through Windows Server Update Services. The sole exception is MS11-079, which must be manually downloaded from the company’s download centre.

Hacked MySQL.com used to serve Windows malware


This screenshot is from the Armorize video created to show exactly how a visitor to MySQL.com was infected before the infection was cleaned up.

The MySQL site, whose open source repository serves some of the most popular Web sites, has been hacked and was being used to serve malware to visitors running Windows before it was cleaned up today, a security firm said.

Armorize Chief Executive Wayne Huang and some of his firm’s researchers warned about the attack in a blog post today.

MySQL.com acted quickly to remove the malware so computers would stop getting infected, but Huang told CNET he did not know how long site visitors were vulnerable or how many may have been infected. Armorize estimated that MySQL.com gets more than 100,000 page views a day and more than 34,000 unique daily visitors.

“The infection rate tends to be high for these types of attacks,” he said. “They handled it very quickly but that doesn’t mean they cleaned up the backdoors the attackers left”on the site.

Huang said he did not know how dangerous an infection would be to a computer that was hit with one, except to say that the malware would be very difficult to clean up and would still be running on the machine even after a reboot.

“We haven’t gone in depth in analyzing what this particular piece of malware does,” he said. “We know it changes some of your Windows .dlls (Dynamic-link libraries), probably to make sure it is permanently installed and running all the time. You may be able to clean it up, but it won’t be a trivial process.”

MySQL.com representatives could not be reached for comment this afternoon. Representatives from Oracle, which owns MySQL.com, did not immediately respond to e-mails and calls seeking comment.

Before the infection was removed, the compromise redirected traffic to a BlackHole exploit pack that forces the browser to install a piece of malware on the machine, according to the Armorize Malware Blog.

“It exploits the visitor’s browsing platform (the browser, the browser plugins like Adobe Flash, Adobe PDF, etc, Java,…), and upon successful exploitation, permanently installs a piece of malware into the visitor’s machine, without the visitor’s knowledge,” the blog says. “The visitor doesn’t need to click or agree to anything; simply visiting mysql.com with a vulnerable browsing platform will result in an infection.”

The Armorize blog also has a video showing how a visitor’s machine could have gotten infected from the MySQL.com site. Only 4 out of 44 vendors on VirusTotal site can detect the malware, Armorize said.

Meanwhile, Brian Krebs of the Krebs on Security blog said he had noticed someone selling administrative access to MySQL.com on an exclusive Russian underground hacker forum a few days ago for $3,000.

“i think it’s very likely that it’s related, esp with these Russian forums,” said Huang.
