Something called "Fragus Toolkit" just tried to attack my computer and was blocked by my antivirus program. The attacking computer isp was - my own! The destination computer was somewhere in the Ukraine according to Whois.net.

There are a number of discussion threads on the net about this attact. Anyone here know anything about it? Any info would be great.

Thanks

Looks like a pretty comprehensive exploit kit... Symantec: Fragus Exploit Kit

Looks like your browser was exploited from visiting a malicious site, a payload was downloaded, and you're now the happy owner of a trojan/botnet! Looks expensive too - $800 to buy this kit.

Just get a good anti-virus like Avast.

Also, if you're on Vista/7 you should be fine.

It's a tool that individuals use to run a barrage of security exploits on an individual/multiple computers, kind of like Metasploit Framework.

More than likely it's some script kiddy on your ISP trying to attack you


You should be fine. Just auto-update etc, and get Avast.

It's sort of like Metaspoit... It embeds malicious code into advertisements/websites that drops a payload if you visit the site. Metasploit doesn't create webpages to do this though - it relies on P2P or client-side attack. Fragus is harder to trace, since it's a webpage and not a computer-to-computer exploit.

My antivirus notified me that it (the attacking toolkit) was successfully blocked and that no further action was needed. I am however going to run a Malwarebytes full scan after Superantispyware finishes running its full scan. It does seem to be a nasty little bugger from what I've read in the online forums though. Thanks for the info. I suppose it could have been initiated by anyone, anywhere who bought the damn thing for $800.

Oh, by the way, it attacked just after I left from looking at a Myspace page. Is Myspace notorious for this kind of thing. If so, I'll never visit another Myspace page ever again.

Ahh, I didn't read the whole just of it, just what symnatec and one other source said.

Thanks for the info

I did a full scan with both Superantispyware and Malwarebytes. No threats detected. Cancel red alert.
