    Malware

    Hiyall,
    This is my first post.
    I'm actually pissed off that I need to be here because after being told by MS L3 help that a L2 'expert' would contact me shortly... which was one month ago!

    Anyway. I have a Access 2010 database which used to contain 25, 000 lines. Malware has progressively reduced it to less than 9,000 lines. I used to use a QNAP nas drive and a little research leads me to believe that the malware contaminated the QNAP. I deleted QNAP immediately however the infection continues to reduce the database.

    I would be eternally grateful for advice how to stop the infection. I will not be reinstalling QNAP.

    Deleting records seems like odd behavior, but I'd start with Malwarebytes and maybe the forums at bleepingcomputer.com.

    Paul,
    Thanx for the prompt reply. I already had malwarebytes on my Windows pc. I sent all the logs to mwbts. They found nothing.

    I checked a few of those links but saw nothing to suggest the behavior targets ms access db's. Are you 100% sure it's not something else, like a malformed query that's frequently running unexpectedly?

    Sorry didnt mean to imply it had anything to do with Access, just that the malware was well known with QNap.
