Specs: Windows xp, server 2008
Hello, we have avast endpoint protection suite for 200 computers accross the network. Recently we were infected with mabezat virus and it spreaded accross in almost all windows xp machines. We tried every possible ways to clean it and we thought we managed. But two weeks back lot of woord, excell,ppt and some other files were curropted from the server. When I checked the last modified date and time alll the curropted files were showing the same time and date. This means it got curropted by a virus or through scanning. We have no clue whats happening. The same thing has happened again yesterday with some more files curropted. Recently we started seeing .trz files in some of the folders. Can any one please advice what to do at this stage.We are a school and its effecting the students courseworks also.

I would run a removal tool first followed by a Malwarebytes scan.
I would also suggest once clean. Each flash drive/ external hard drive wanting to connect to your network has a scan on an isolated pc or the autorun.inf file will infect your network again.

You have either connected back to your network before being 100% clean or it's rerunning from an students infected flash drive etc.

I use this trick to prevent flash drives infecting computers - it works well:

You have to hit the Enter key after each of the three lines in section 2.

It works because the sub-folder CON is normally forbidden in Windows so cannot normally be created or deleted.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
