Combofix Infected with Sality

Yesterday it came to my attention that some downloads of Combofix had been infected with Sality malware.   You can read the official post here from Grinler over at bleepingcomputer.  Grinler states that…

“The minute we heard about this, we pulled the executable so that it is no longer available from Unfortunately we have no control over other sites that may have mirrored ComboFix without permission, so please do not attempt to download it elsewhere.”

I don’t really use Combofix that much, but it sure does give me pause about using it now.
