Anyone else have BD going ballistic today?


Mine's suddenly telling me it's blocking viruses left right & center when I had no issues prior.


I am currently scanning with malwarebytes.

    Mine's suddenly telling me it's blocking viruses left right & center when I had no issues prior.


    I am currently scanning with malwarebytes.


    Since an Update it's telling me I've "FakeAlert.5" in mostly every file?!


    That's impossible.

  • I seen that as well.

    It's telling me that BitDefender's own .dlls and such are viruses.


    Along with numerous other essential files in system32 and syswow64.


    Update is definitely botched. Until its fixed, turn off your realtime protection to save your own computer from deleting itself to death.

  • Hello all,


    Please provide the exact detection name and the file location.


    Also if possible please send me by PM a sample file.


    Cris.

  • This is happening to me, too. EVERY file that is trying to run is getting quarantined. Windows Explorer and even Bitdefender update itself is being quarantined. Someone really screwed this one up.

    problem is, there is at least 50 files in quarantine that BitDefender relegated as a malware.

  • cristi, it's trojan.fakealert.s for me.

  • I'm getting this too. Before I could shut off BitDefender it quarantined most of my system, including BitDefender itself!


    What do I do? Most programs do not work. The computer barely booted (did some kind of repair first).


    How do I unquarantine the files without BitDefender?


    HELP!

  • Bitdefender is going crazy today!!!... it blocks all the EXE files including cmd.exe....the trojan name called fake5


    Hurry up...we need fixes soon


    I've turned the realtime protection!!

  • haha...


    File C:\Windows\System32\de-DE\ws2_32.dll.mui


    Date: Saturday, 20. March 2010 17:00:01


    Virusname: Trojan.FakeAlert.5


    Action: Moved to Quarantane


    (I've the german version so...tried to translate it)


    Same for


    C:\Windows\System32\de-DE\audiodg.exe.mui


    C:\Windows\System32\de-DE\dwm.exe.mui


    C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvstres.dll


    AND now the funniest thing:


    C:\Program Files\BitDefender\Bitdefender 2010\vsserv.exe


    Action: blocked


    I deactivated my antivirus now...

  • this is ridiculous. We paid for a program to protect our computer, but it instead obliterates our system from the inside. Literally.

  • Same Issue here, i want to start some programm and this messages popups. I have also deactivated now the AntiVirus Part of Bitdefender. I hope there is soon a updated and fixed Virus Pattern.

  • Trojan.FakeAlert.5


    Both computers after last update.


    So many system files moved to Quarantine (where is Quarantine? can't find it) I dare not restart my PC since it will not boot again since windows installer is one of the files blitzed.


    Example


    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US\msxml3r.dll


    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US\netcenter.dll


    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US\main.cpl


    explorer.exe


    wermgr.exe


    C:\Program Files\Bitdefender 2010\updatepatch.exe


    Way to many to pull off.

  • malwarebytes is not finding anything at all.

  • Mine is doing the exact same thing as well. This is very frustrating. . .


    A quick fix for this would be much appreciated.

    Any quick fix won't work since it quarantines the update exe

  • The same problem here on my PC:


    Around 50 Files are moved to Quarantine.


    Reason also: Trojan.FakeAlert.5


    Because my PC didn't respond well i tried to reboot it.


    Now it doesn't start anymore because of missing system files.


    Is there a chance to move the files back with the Rescue CD?


    Or what is the best way to get my PC running again?

    ROFL!


    Sorry...but it's kind of funny...


    I'm so happy, that it quarantied only 3 system files for me, before I turned it off....


    I tried to play them back...but they are still existing...


    I hope it's working on restart...


    Isn't it possible to unquarantine the update.exe and turn off the virusscan before?

  • Are you guys on Windows 7 64bit? The same thing is being posted on the German forum and that's the thing they have in common.

  • Yes, I am on Win7 64bit.

    Yeah, this is what I did. I restored all files that weren't already restored automatically, turned off AV, and now I'm playing the waiting game for an update.

  • That's correct - Windows 7 64-bit

  • Are you guys on Windows 7 64bit? The same thing is being posted on the German forum and that's the thing they have in common.


    My PC is Vista 64-Bit.


    There is a German Forum?


    Then I will look there.

  • Are you guys on Windows 7 64bit? The same thing is being posted on the German forum and that's the thing they have in common.


    Yes. Two desktops.

  • I'm also running Vista 64 bit.

  • also windwos 7 64bit here.

  • edited March 2010

    So it seems, it's only affecting 64bit vista and win7 at the moment

  • Still running malwarebytes & nothing found.

  • Can someone tell me how to get the files out of quarantine? I can't find it buy browsing.

    so can we safely presume that BitDefender, a program that we paid for to protect our computer, is deleting our computer to death bit by bit?
