Traficom detects Gumblar Malware Traffic Coming from My Mac, but F-Secure Scanner Detects Nothing
I tried to find out help to this from my Internet connection providers, but they could not help. I also tried to find help from the F-Secure chat, but the chat person did not want to help.
I use the DNA Turvapaketti, which is of course the DNA product, but it uses F-Secure virus detecting technology and database as we all know. So, I have been informed from my Internet connection providers that Gumblar malware traffic is coming from my Internet connections. Ultimately, they got the information from Traficom. I have full scanned my Mac computer twice without any results. I also full scanned my Mac with the Antivirus X-Out, and it could not detect anything. I got the Antivirus X-Out from the Apple Store and I updated its virus detecting database.
The mac is only device I use on the Internet.
But one of my Internet connection providers say that criminals must have a remote control to my Mac and they can use my computer as a bot for malware traffic.
As there is no sign of any malware or virus in my Mac and, secondly, no malware cannot be detected by the DNA Turvapaketti (F-Secure-based) and by the Antivirus X-Out, the claim that criminals are using my Mac as a bot sounds really crazy!
I have also checked all the controls that could let others to use my computer and there is no sign of any remote control and there is no possibility for the remote control because I have prevented those.
Also my F-Secure-based virus scanner scans actively my computer, and it does not have given any signs of the malware. I have full scanned twice my Mac.
It should also be noticed that the Gumblar is ages-old technology and was for Windows operating systems like XP and 2000. If there is a new version of the Gumblar in my Mac, it has to be a new and very-hard-to-be-detected version of the Gumblar. It just does not make sense to make it look like the Gumblar.
Anyway, if it is true that there is a malware in my Mac, which the newest virus scanners cannot detect, there is a very serious information security fault in the F-Secure virus detecting databases. So, urgent measures for solving the issue are needed. Otherwise, we cannot trust in F-Secure-based products.
