I had this problem, i kept having to do the fix as well. I noticed it kept happening when i cclicked on an thread on the old message board. I did put a warning on the thread not to click on it as this bloodhound exploit kept happening. I wondered if was just a bug in norton??? all my updates were inplace, i did complete scan & system check and found nothing???

However there was a thread on the old board i put a warning on , because if i clicked on the link in the topic another member posted i got a warning from my antivirus program that this expolit was detected ?? I thought it odd that this link given by someone should keep triggering this exploit.

When I ran a check bloodhound didn't show up.
I then did a manual search and didn't find the file / app anywhere on my computer.
thyme ... you said you just deleted it from your system. How did you locate it ?

My norton put it straight into quarantine.
I had the settings set as try to repair & quarantine then if unsuccessful. (i have since changed that setting to deny access)
I went into quarantine & clicked on file it gave me option of deleting from system (which i chose, as it was isolated) or repair or submit file.
If you go into reports, then activity log , virus alerts, it tells you exactly where the infected file was found, and how norton tried to deal with.

I've got nothing in my quarantine folder.
What I'm thinking happened is that Norton was issuing a warning that bloodhound was attempting to infect me.
I've got my security set so nothing gets installed without my letting it.
So this was an unsuccessful attempt.
Does that sound plausible ?
I've had the same thing happen with another trojan, and again ... I got a warning from Norton but it never actually got into my computer.

yes sounds plausible, your settings prob set to deny access so wouldnt even hit quarantine. If you look in your activity log, then virus alerts it will prob say access denied & name of virus etc

Repair failed / access denied.
I think I'll just set my Auto-Protect option to deny access.
I don't really see any reason to attempt to repair it or quarantine it.

yep totally agree, have got same settings Why bother to repair infected file?
