Forefront Malware not being reported RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,
    I've recently added a new office to out Forefront deployment, and notice something unusual; if I drill down through "computers summary" report to a particular individual computer, I see a malware as below -


    11/03/2009 18:08:05


    Microsoft Forefront Client Security scan has detected spyware or other potentially unwanted software.
    For more information please see the following:
    Scan ID: {08DA080E-EAC4-4D18-BDB9-13AE980B285C}
    Scan Type: AntiMalware
    Scan Parameters: Full Scan
    Name: Trojan:Win32/FakeXPA
    ID: 2147610319
    Severity: High
    Category: Trojan
    Path Found: file:C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\XBVFPLGY\InstallAVg_77018101[1].exe
    Detection Type: Concrete

    Yet this event has not issued an alert as normal "concrete" events do. My alert level is set to 3 which has not changed.
    Any ideas as to where the issue could be would be much appreciated

  • Try to update your deployment and policies , there might be delay in update reproting, if that won't help contact Forefront Support team. Also make sure client fully registered in Active Directory .

  • I've got the exact same problem with these 1006 event IDs. They do not generate an email alert and the scheduled (Full) scans that find these DO NOT clean them. If a manual full scan is run then action is taken. I also have policy alert level set to 3.
