Back in the 1980s and early 1990s self-disinfection was a technique used exclusively by parasitic viruses to avoid detection, however it seems the modern malware writers have rediscovered it.
The sample arrives as a specially crafted Word document about the Chinese earthquake (spammers and malware authors love newsworthy sensational headlines to peddle their wares) which when opened undergoes somewhat of a metamorphosis.
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?
