I was in search of the source of Sahara.sys and Salvador.sys .... computer stopped responding, MSC alerted for infection within 30 seconds. Scanning now ... infection caught.

Second time in my life. Earlier I was caught by a spyware, years ago.

What did you get infected by? Just out of curiosity.

Are your Java, Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader installations up to date?

Java = 7u21
Flash = 11.7.700.203
Reader = 11.0.03

If they are, I bet you've got a DPF or something leftover from an older version of Java - it doesn't update very nicely at all and leaves things all over your system which can still be exploited.

Realised on way back, when almost home - had left Bank card in Store
Returned to store to retrieve card .


On a brighter note, managed to retrieve card, and...

... the pub has not run out of beer - Yet
That's really bad Nigel. It's good that you found the card.
Now await for something good in your life.
Dinesh, you read Nigel's post wrong. See the last sentence; as they say, All's well that ends well! The pub had beer, everything before that is meaningless .

As for the camera, that was on a strap around my neck, plus I had about forty kilos of backpack, and a "macro" tripod set-up - The average Paparazzi will have a single camera and flash - wimps the lot of em

It was a VLC player plugin, as MSE and MBAM both detected. It was first caught by MSE, then I aborted it and scanned with MBAM, got the same thing.

My flash and reader are up to date, but I dont have Java installed.

Strange Unless you're browser is outdated then it sounds like you were hit by an unpatched exploit.
