Virus Detected was Re: RE: Ship Manifest DOB
- View Source-I got the same virus from the Slova-World mail list and it came in
reponse to one of my questions posted from the same family mentioned
in earlier post. Just said see the attached. I opened it and have now
blown thelast three hours cleaning up my computer.
If anyone else gets caught the easy way is to run norton scan with
windows in safe mode, otherwise you will not be able to delete move or
qauarantine the infected files created by the virus.
they are: in Windows/system/"kern32.exe" and "INTED.EXE" and
or start up in dos so windows won't laod these files and do the delete
from the dos prompt.
This nasty bug sends itself to senders of unread files in your Outlook
or outlook express mail folders (another reason to stay with Netscape)
plus it sends the author your IP address (good reason not to have a
cable modem cause the IP never changes and is always on), so he can
come in and pick up ID, intercept credit cards and the like.
I hope Maura won't get upset about this post but afterall, we are
getting the bug from this group mailing list.
