Microsoft Security Essentials ''detecting'' & removing Trojan:JS/Redirector.JA (24) times.

    Pertanyaan

  • First of all: whats going to stop it permanently.

    Since 3/30/12, the Trojan:JS/Redirector.JA has attacked my PC (24) times to date.

    Microsoft Security Essentials and my Anti-Virus program are ''containing'' & removing the threat attacks.

    Most of these attacks occur when I'am ''running'' internet explorer. I even suspect most of these (trojans) are coming from

    (spam & junk) emails, at (2) of my email accounts. As I ''delete'' the spam & junk emails, the trojan attacks (stop) temporarily;

    until the next day when more emails arrive at my accounts, knowing my email address.

    Right now, its like a ''revolving'' door for (MSE) to detect and remove these trojans, without a (permanent) solution to eradicate existing.

  • I am afraid that two antivirus program may be counterproductive, except for those that do not interfere. I use SpyBot in addition to MSSE. AV programs should be frequently updated, otherwise you are not safe.

    Place your question i the community forum of your undisclosed AV program.

  • From what i am seeing on the internet this is a java script based virus.

    I would start with Windows Updates and patching your system, then also update your java to the latest version.

    Another thing you can try is to increase the internet security for example from default (medium high) to high.

    Deleting your temporary system and internet files should help to. I would recommand running "disk cleanup" utility.

    Any time you have a virus i would recommand turnning off system restore.

    Based on the link below you should be ok if you have the latest definitions, but the virus will keep comming back untill you patch the system.

  • I have had (2) virus programs installed, and running for over a year without problem detection.

    My detecting with (MSE) & (Trend Micro-anti-virus) started 3/30/2012.

    The Trojan:JS/Redirector.JA  is a all-of-a-sudden menace, to put both my programs on alert.

    Each program does periodical updating automatically.

    Thanks for your input to this malware problem.

  • First of all: My internet security setting at (default-Medium High) is "ok". The setting at (High) will start ''blocking'' getting to web pages with a (settings-error message).

    My (Java script) has been updated since-11/12/2011.  I will see about updating it again, since Microsofts information about Trojan:JS/Redirector.JA  is a Java Script .

    Thanks for your input about this malware problem.
