So if im understanding you correctly no one else is saying that the windows patch you are talking about ( i assume is the Daz loader ) is infecting
machines except you?
Im not saying you are wrong its just if there is other information out there about the DAZ loader or similar windows loader programs containing an
advanced BIOS resident virus installed through patching SLIC tables then i would very much like to read it.
Maybe it is incidental and there is some other infection somewhere else, but even after buying ssd's and using DOD spec "Secure enhanced erase" to
completely clean everything including the host protected area, on reboot a 50kb file appears everytime as if by digital magic.
I bought new motherboards eventually for ALL the pc's in my home this is how certain i was it was happening and couldn't be anything else, im not a
software engineer, i have been called by the police in court "Highly Observant", maybe i am also a little paranoid at times, Please accept my
apologies if i am wrong, but i am sure i have been seeing something for quite some time allowing unfettered access, and, my e-mail was compromised
around the time the second hand machine came in, (No ram in it, so that was New/clean, and i changed the HDD for a faster brand new one), message from
microsoft telling me the account has been compromised possibly as they detected spam coming from it.
Also i think i infected my dads machine within 12hours something had logged him off "You have been logged off" (he wasn't happy) and a remote
re-boot was initiated, never could find the virus on it, even after help from the good guys and girls at Laurence abrams site "Bleeping
Of course the transmission of infection is ALWAYS the users fault, and in this case the reason why it is now unremovable without the board being
RMA'd is the dual bios setup gigabyte boards have, at some point the back up bios has been written to with the payload so now all you get from the
board is bios+payload.
It also will not let you reflash the main bios with a clean file.
If you want the motherboard the infection is on, i have it here, if nothing shows up im more than happy to send it to you free of charge, gigabyte
ep41 ud3l socket 775, i am pleased you are taking the time to look at this, even if it is only to call me a paranoid idiot later, i need to know.
(ill put "ATS's resident paranoid idiot" as a signature for a year if i am wrong)
Do you think DAZ being unwilling to release his source code is in anyway suspicious? and the fact it is heavily encrypted?, there were other boot
loaders available before DAZ's for win 7 and they were discontinued and no longer supported, the boot loader had such penetration into peoples
machines, and the amount of people who used it was enormous, it is the perfect route for maximum presence.
