Remediation

Malwarebytes can detect and remove Virus.Ramnit without further user interaction.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  2. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  3. Then click Finish.
  4. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  5. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  6. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  7. Restart your computer when prompted to do so.

However, if the infection has been active for a while, this usually leaves the affected system unusable, since necessary files may have been infected and removed. If this is true, we recommend making a backup of important files that do not have the EXE, DLL, and HTML extensions and then reformatting.
