What is Win32:Sirefef-AAP? How big is the threat?
Win32:Sirefef-AAP is a new Trojan detected by some anti-virus such as avast, and GDATA. It is hard to remove via a normal anti-virus. Currently, a couple of computer users got the nasty virus and they scanned their computers with AVAST! Anti-Virus and found several detections of rootkits and potential malware in their systems. One example is the Win32:Sirefef-AAP [rtk]. The users have tried quarantined these infections in “chests,” but when theirs computers restart and they run another scan, the infections reappear as if the scan did nothing to help. When your computer was infected with the virus, you will get the google redirect virus. Your search engine has been hijacked by that nginx redirect software. Some of the victims followed the directions on other forums but didn’t get the problems on the task manager.Whenever you mostly try to click a Google search, you get the message saying “Welcome to urlseek 204 nginx!!” That’s caused by the Trojan horse, people said:” I have tried getting rid of it with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. It didn’t detect the virus.” The Win32:Sirefef-AAP virus comes from several versions of sirefef, even if you have downloaded several anti-spyware including ESET and stopzilla, but none works. Hurry up to drag it away from your computer forever!
