At this moment there a some really bad TDSS (like BOO/TDss.M) on the web active.

How good is the Deepguard against TDSS?

If you would like have some samples, you can get them here from this User: (Sorry it´s a german forum).

    Hi Hexo,


    thanks for your post.


    Generally our Deepguard and our heuristics are doing pretty good with TDSS malware. Our Lab is also keeping active track on this family of malware and will adjust our product if needed. If you suspect any computer to be already infected with this rootkit, we recommend to use our Rescue CD  ( to clean the system.

    No no, my system is clean. I have checked it with several tool like Gdata Boot CD, Emsisoft and of cource F-Secure IS 2011.
    Also i use a sandboxie when i am surfing on the web.

    This was only a question about the efficent of F-Secure and TDSS malware.
