Win32.TrojanPWS.Mapper

Discussion in 'Virus Information' started by village idiot, Jan 29, 2009.

  1. Vista 64
    IE 7

    I just ran ad-aware, and Win32.TrojanPWS.Mapper has showed up AGAIN. The
    TAI rating for this is 10. It is located in
    C:\BigFishGamesCache\Hidden Expedition - Titanic\kbqqcs.exe

    Before I remove it, I would like to know if I should remove/uninstall the
    Big Fish Game, Hidden Expedition - Titanic.

    Also, are there any other files associated with it that I should remove.

    I removed this once before, on Jan. 2nd, using ad-aware and this is the
    first time it has showed up again. I have not played the game since then,
    but have played and installed other big fish games. Also, I did not
    originally download Hidden Expedition Titanic from the big fish site. But. I
    did buy the full version from big fish and I am guessing that they just
    "updated" the first install.....??????????

    Help asap, please.

    Much thanks to all of you wonderful microsoft people.

  2. I forgot...... of course.

    If I close my laptop, can a virus keep doing its thing? I'm trusting my gut
    feeling that nothing goes on with the laptop closed.... fingers crossed.

    Also, if my laptop is closed, but not turned off, can virus scans, and tune
    ups still run... with it closed.

    Oh boy, I know this is a stupid question for you guys, but I cannot find an
    answer for this anywhere.

    Thanks.

    Hello VI:

    From: <http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php>, download, install,
    *update* and run the free version of MBAM.

    Similarly, follow-up with free edition version of SAS from:

    <http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html>

    When completed, post a follow-up as to how things went.

    When a notebook is closed it sleeps or hibernates. In either case the OS is NOT running
    it is suspended and thus NOTHING runs, malware or anti malware scans.

    As for...
    C:\BigFishGamesCache\Hidden Expedition - Titanic\kbqqcs.exe

    Please submit a sample of "kbqqcs.exe" to Virus Total --
    http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html
    The submission will then be tested against many different AV vendor's scanners.
    That will give you an idea what it is and who recognizes it. In addition Virus
    Total will provide the sample to all participating vendors.

    You can also submit a suspect, one at a time, via the following email URL...
    mailto:?subject=SCAN

    When you get the report, please post back the exact results.

  5. Hi David.........

    Can you please tell me exactly what I should type into the Virus Total box?

    To make sure that I am on the right page.... it has analysis underlined
    with blue, and the box "upload a file" is open, with browse next to the box.
    'The first time, I typed in the whole location
    "c:\BigFishGamesCache\Hidden Expedition - Titanic\vkbqqcs.exe" without the
    quotes

    The response was immediate, on a blank page - 0 bytes size received

    Next, I typed in "vkbqqcs.exe" (again without the quotes)
    It showed that it was scanning. It 'scanned' for 12 minutes before I
    finally closed the window.

    Please advise.
    Thanks

    You don't need to type anything in the box. Click on the "Browse" button
    and your folder tree will open. Use the folder tree to navigate to where
    this file is and then click on the file. The path will then appear in the
    box and you won't have to type anything. just click to upload the file.

  8. Why are you shouting ?
    { Posting in all caps in Usenet is akin to shouting }

    Why are you responsing to a thread that is more than 2.5 years old ?

    Is there actually malware in relation to your problem ?
