My computer has the Open Cloud Security virus. I followed the steps to get rid of it, but they have failed.
1. I started my computer in safemode with networking
2. I checked the internet options but the box was not checked to begin with so skipped that step
3. Downloaded and ran r-kill. It got rid of the dialog boxes for Open Cloud
4. Ran Malwarebytes antimalware. Tried to run Quick scan and Full scan. Both failed after a few seconds and then cannot open Malwarebytes anymore.
It shows Error message reading: Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
If i resintall the program, it will open again and then fail the same way.

Ran dds and gmer.

gmer fails a 20 seconds in and gets the same error as Malwarebytes. I saved the log file before it failed.

Hello to all,

today saw a commercial about Kaspersky Security Cloud. Was thinking whaaaattt...??!!

So today reinstalled Windows 10 64bit clean on a new GPT EFI Dynamic Drive and must say, that thing is snappy.

Kaspersky Version 18.0.0.405(b)

The interface and features feel allot like the Internet Security 2017 but allot more smooth.

My Question to you all here in the Community is how do you think about it?

My Security config. changed again. Will post a new one soon.

Best regards
Val.

I'm a computer consultant and three of my clients have been infected with this virus in the last 2 weeks. One was so bad that I had to run a recovery back to the origin of the computer. On the other two computers I had removed Open Cloud from startup and then all the files it created manually. I was then able to run Malwarebytes on this computer and it found the malware and others. (I wasn't able to run any scans on the second computer, including McAfee.) But then I had further problems - either the computer was excruciatingly slow, or as on this computer, when you click on All Programs, only McAfee is listed! I also get some startup errors that I didn't get before. Then I found the post about TDSSKiller. I ran it and RKill (Explore.exe) on both computers and nothing changed. I gave up on the other computer and did a full recovery. I'm hoping I don't have to do that on this one. There are lots of files to backup and several programs to reinstall. I've attached the files you need to analyze the problem. Thanks, Leslie

Hi, I've had the open cloud security problem for about 2 weeks now, at first it kept popping up over and over again telling me I had all kinds of threats etc., I Googled it and followed the instructions for removal with the malwarebytes' malware removal kit, and it would find some infected files, and then the scan would stop just before it finished saying it experienced some kind of error. I also ran AVG and found some infected files, put them in the virus vault, and then emptied the vault. I put the open cloud security link from my desktop into the trash can and then emptied it, and the pop-ups about me being infected stopped, but I'm assuming it's still on here because I didn't really do anything, so I came on here, I read the preparation guide for removing the malware, and I downloaded the recommended files and ran the scans, and I'm attaching them below. I'm not very good with any of this, and I would really appreciate any help with removing it. Thank you.

Don't believe anyone who says cloud computing is just a buzzword, doomed to become the next failed, overhyped industry former technology darling. Cloud computing is already here, and if you don't learn to secure it, you won't have much of a job to cling to in the not-too-distant future. Think of the information security version of a Cobol programmer.

Your Security? Not Our Problem, Say Cloud Providers.
So, apparently from a cloud provider perspective, it is the cloud computing users' fault that cloud providers aren't making cloud security a high priority. If their customers don't demand it, cloud providers say they aren't going to provide it.

But this belief seems to be undercut by the result of the survey: "... [while] 69 percent of cloud providers see the cloud user as most responsible for security, ... only 35 percent of users believe they are most responsible for ensuring security."

This leads to a situation, the survey notes, where "... neither the company that provides the services nor the company that uses cloud computing seem willing to assume responsibility for security in the cloud."

Hackers must be laughing all the way to the bank. However, as a customer of those companies using cloud computing services, I don't like particularly being put at risk because of the discord.

Words of advice to potential cloud customers: Caveat emptor.

I looked Open Cloud Security up on bleepingcomputer.com and I tried to follow the instructions. I'm using Windows XP, and i'm not savvy with regedit so I tried the antimalware route via safe mode. When I tried to open any form of safe mode i got the blue screen of death with some sort of memory dump notice at the bottom. So i started in my regular mode, used RKill (renamed iexplorer) to stop the rogue processes which allowed me to run antimalwarebytes. It took forever, and finally logged some things as killed, but open cloud security was still there. So in a fit of desperation I took to deleting what appeared to be folders which were definately not there before the infections. Files named with loooong numbers, as well as the files associated with open cloud security. Several clone shortcuts were found, but no program files. I went to the registry and deleted the only file i could find in the registry that has been linked to this virus. Then I restored last known good settings, but now I can't open a single program. The notice says to restore the file association in folder options in the control panel. But I don't even know how to do that. Does anyone know what happened? I'm not backed up in any way, and I will lose things which i would be very sad to lose, but I'm not against starting from scratch. It doesn't look like I have the virus anymore, but regardless, my computer is completely devastated. Is it possible that I deleted something that... Read more

I have 2 concerns:
1) The GMER log mentions something about the file system and keyboard driver.
2) I see "Error 1012: There was an error while attempting to read the local hosts file" in Component Services (although I have no problems access the web).

Hi there, I am based in Australia, and work with a contractor in the Philippines, she is in her home office. We are both working on stand alone PC's connected to our own private internet. We access cloud software to work on the same file. I believe the cloud software is secure. What I was wondering was is there any cyber risk involved if my contractor is working with confidential information in Phillippines on a secure cloud platform ie xero? If not, is there any online system (network or other) that will make the data flow more secure? I need to be 100% sure that my clients data would be secure, and I am just not sure how to do this in a cost effective way. Any suggestions?? Many thanks, Jodie.

Cloud data security still a challenge;
Despite the continued importance of cloud computing resources to organisations, companies are not adopting appropriate governance and security measures to protect sensitive data in the cloud.
These are just a few findings a Ponemon Institute study titled ?The 2016 Global Cloud Data Security Study,? commissioned by Gemalto. The study surveyed more than 3 400 IT and IT security practitioners worldwide to gain a better understanding of key trends in data governance and security practices for cloud-based services.

According to 73% of respondents, cloud-based services and platforms are considered important to their organisation?s operations and 81% said they will be more so over the next two years. In fact, 36% of respondents said their companies? total IT and data processing needs were met using cloud resources today and that they expected this to increase to 45% over the next two years.
Although cloud-based resources are becoming more important to companies? IT operations and business strategies, 54% of respondents did not agree their companies have a proactive approach to managing security and complying with privacy and data protection regulations in cloud environments. This is despite the fact that 65% of respondents said their organisations are committed to protecting confidential or sensitive information in the cloud. Furthermore, 56% did not agree their organisation is careful about sharing sensitive information in the cl... Read more

This past week my fianc? got a rogue antivirus on her PC ? Open Cloud Security ? while searching DeviantArt and listening to Pandora. Though I wasn?t present to observe, it appeared to be a drive-by installation (AFAIK, she didn?t click on any suspicious items).

I am working on a use case where we are using Oracle Fusion Cloud which is hosting few of ERP apps. These apps are currently authenticated via Okta.
We are planning to deploy Microsoft Cloud App Security (CASB) in the environment. Now, we know that MCAS does not have API connector for Oracle Fusion Cloud, so we wanted to leverage Session Policies via Conditional Access App Control.
Is it possible, and if yes, then do we need to change the federation of the apps currently hosted on Oracle Fusion Cloud from Okta to Azure AD?

Hey guys, I googled this and also checked on malwaretips and Comodo's forum and I couldn't find an answer to this question anywhere.
CIS Cloud Lookup say's it's analyzing unknown files and uploading them to the cloud, the question is what kind of files does it upload, does it upload only executables or all unknown files? I ask this because Comodo's faq and forum doesn't state the answer anywhere, I have nothing too personal on my PC but I don't like my personal files floating somewhere on Comodo's servers and I want to know if I should disable this or not.
also, will there be a major issue if I disable this?
 

A:Comodo Internet Security Cloud Lookup, what files are being uploaded?

I think that the files would be converted into MD5-Hashes ,(Correct me if I am wrong fellow MT members) and that those hashes would be sent to the cloud for analysis...
Your actual personal information and file names will not be sent..

FROM WIKIPEDIA...ABOUT MD5#:
MD5 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
MD5 hashes[edit]
The 128-bit (16-byte) MD5 hashes (also termed message digests) are typically represented as a sequence of 32 hexadecimal digits. The following demonstrates a 43-byte ASCII input and the corresponding MD5 hash:

MD5("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog") =
9e107d9d372bb6826bd81d3542a419d6

Even a small change in the message will (with overwhelming probability) result in a mostly different hash, due to the avalanche effect. For example, adding a period to the end of the sentence:

MD5("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.") =
e4d909c290d0fb1ca068ffaddf22cbd0

The hash of the zero-length string is:

MD5("") =
d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e

The MD5 algorithm is specified for messages consisting of any number of bits; it is not limited to multiples of eight bit (octets, bytes) as shown in the examples above. Some MD5 implementations such as md5sum might be limited to octets, or they might not supportstreaming for messages of an initially undetermined length.

I got the nasty Open Cloud Security rogue anti-virus software. Popped up while I was out of the room so I wasn't able to do an immediate hard shut down in time. By the time I got back, a few minutes later, it had sunk its tentacles in pretty deeply. It has disabled my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, my AVG anti-virus, and system restore, even in safe mode. When I try to run MBAM or GMER I got a notification that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." Again, this occurs even in Safe Mode (with networking). I've also got Google re-direct going on. I manually deleted what I could of the virus and that seemed to slow it down considerably, but it's still in there somewhere. Here is my DDS log:
