I recently came across a computer that was infected with a lpcloudsvr302 and a bk-coretag.js Virus. I did some research about the two Viruses and realized that their is no reliable source that helps users to remove the Viruses. Most of the website's I have come across basically tell users to download Software (A) then download Software (B)..etc.

So if someone can explain how to combat and prevent a lpcloudsvr302 and bk-coretag.js Virus, than that would be greatly appreciated.

  • Nuke and reload from scratch is the only 100% solution for infections. It's usually much faster than trying to eliminate it from the machine. – Nathan C Apr 29 '14 at 15:59
  • Isn't that a bit extreme for lpcloudsvr302 and bk-coretag.js? – Green Apr 29 '14 at 17:23
  • Well, removal instructions for both are a search away and seem simple. Viruses have a nasty habit of returning if not dealt with properly. – Nathan C Apr 29 '14 at 23:35

Let me use a example of how we combat infections over where i work.

we mostly begin with analyzing, so lets say we found the bk-coretag.js virus, which is classified as an adware or malware virus... an innocent little bugger that annoys mroe then it does harm (if lucky!).

note that these virusses mostly appear through the installation of programs (i.e. when you install a program like CCleaner, it will ask you to "install this totally not obvious crappy adware tool you will never use", its easy to miss that, and click yes too hasty, BAM! you're infected).

these are common, you can remove them by running a virus scan (i prefer Malwarebytes for this task, since its powerfull and trusted: http://www.malwarebytes.org )

after you scanned, remove the program you think its attached to, since it has to come from somewhere (the indentifying is the tricky part).

after that, go to your browser, and reset all the setting for search engines and such, then restart your pc.

if it still occurs, you may have remoed the wrong program, so keep on digging till this works.

how to prevent? simple, when installing, read everything carefully, and WATCH WHAT YOU INSTALL, when installing random programs from the net, search around on google if theyre not "malwareliscious", and always keep your anti-virus up to date, and always a copy of malwarebytes on your PC, which runs nicly next to most anti virusses.
