Win32: Bropia-G (wrm)
« on: February 24, 2005, 10:08:43 PM »
Hi

I've got the Win32: Bropia-G worm on my computer but I can't find a way to remove it. The avast anti-virus program detects it but everytime i try to repair, delete or move it to the chest it re-appears.

Please can somebody help???

Hi

Windows 98SE
avast version 4.1, vps file 0508-2
virus name was win32: bropia-g (wrm) and its located in c:\

i've tried to delete the worm using avast but it doesn't seem to remove the worm.
also, there are about 10 ms-dos shortcuts in the same location that are infected by the worm that can't be deleted!!

i hope you can help me.

Does updating to the latest version of avast help? (4.6.603)

avast still doesn`t detect bropia n,p,q,r  variants! These variants were detected my symantec about 1 weeks ago.

sorry i didn`t make myself clear,and sorry for any confussion.  i have not been infected by Bropia but i know a few people who have, i checked the avast database and noticed the M,N,Q,R variants are not listed.

These variants were detected aroung 21/22nd Feb. So will a future avast update include these?

The particular variants are usually named differently by antivirus companies - especially when there are many variants of the malware.
So, for example, what Symantec calls Bropia M/N/Q/R - avast! may call Bropia J/K/L/M.
(I'm not saying it's exactly like that - it was just an example. It's hard to say without the particular files.)
