Hi

I just received an email from someone that said it was from
DHL but it contained a Trojan, why did Windows Security Essentials not pick
it up?

I found out it was a Trojan because I was suspicious and forwarded it to a
PC
where I run a different AV program.

Cheers

Daniel

Why would you trust Microsoft to protect the computer at this stage in
the game?

Microsoft COULD have made the OS secure, but they opted for tight
integration with all of their applications and to not rock the boat, to
maintain users and profit numbers.

Trusting microsoft to protect our computer is silly.

Chances are it is a Bredolab trojan.

And why would you bother posting in reply, it is not an answer to my
question,
but in answer to your question, I trust Microsoft because they have never
let me down,
it is not Microsoft's fault that all the Linux using virus writers are so
busy writing
viruses to attack them.

Cheers

you are probably correct, but why did MSE not pick it up?

Cheers

New variants being generated all the time. Do you still have a sample ?

If yes, upload it to; http://www.uploadmalware.com/

Hi

I'm not sure if I can get it, I have deleted it on this PC but it may be on
my other PC, I will check when the household is awake.

Cheers

You should understand the fact that *all* antimalware programs will miss
some specimens - especially if it is a new variant,

What was it, a phishing attempt?

What AV program, and what did it identify the malware as?

I posted a reply because after all these decades I've learned, across
thousands of computers and networks, to not trust Microsoft with
Security for any reason.

You're confusing what COULD be with what IS - Microsoft chooses to NOT
secure the O/S because it would cost them market share as apps no longer
work, as vendors would have to recode their apps, and because the
foundation of their systems need to be less secure to allow the apps to
communicate between each other as they have (not as they could).

You already know the answer to your question, before you even posted it,
because no vendor provides 100% protection against all malware, because
new variants will always be created, because you're not willing to
secure your OS at the level needed and work with the adjustments you
would have to make.

I see a lot of anti Microsoft rhetoric that is baseless, people just
do not like success, there are NO secure OS so what do we do,
not run computers??

I have never been infected so Microsoft must be doing okay, for crying
out loud, you don't even trust you best friend, well guess what, I do trust
my best friend and Microsoft.
