Nexus 7, The Wait.

A lot of people have received their Nexus 7 on Monday July 16th, 2012. I on the other hand would be receiving one sometimes later today.

My colleague suggested we all should go to Pick Up Stix for lunch today and we did. Then I get this fortune:

A small lucky package is on its way to you soon.

Well played, as long as this Nexus 7 is in a relatively small package.

TDSS Rootkit

A client called me because one of the office computer “was not working.”

Well, the problem was much severe than described. It suffered from multiple malware infections. As usual, I used numbers of applications to detect and remove the malware. I also noted that this computer is unable to download any Windows Update.

So, the system is infected with TDSS Rootkit.

The next step is to download Kaspersky Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller.

I made sure to “Change parameters” and select the option to detect TDSS file system.

After a reboot, Windows is able to download and install updates.
