Recent variants of RINBOT exploited a vulnerability in Symantec antivirus software. RINBOT emerged in 2006 spawning new variants of RINBOT in mid-February that exploited certain software (including Windows) vulnerabilities. Trend Micro detects the newest Rinbot variants as WORM_RINBOT.F and WORM_RINBOT.E. Both variants exploit an old SQL Server flaw, propagates via network shares, and has backdoor capabilities.
As newer variants emerge, information will be posted in the Trend Micro Virus Encyclopedia. Solutions for cleaning are available in the above links. RINBOT can be blocked by using firewall applications, specifically blocking and restricting outgoing port traffic.
RINBOT does not currently exploit any known vulnerability in any Trend Micro products.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
