new virus (where to get and how i managed to fix)
« on: October 31, 2003, 09:57:43 PM »
it was a link on mirc that someone pasted
basically if you go there, it would spam the following each 4 mins or so, but you cannot see it, only others see it

<ReaperSpirit> http://www.angelfire.com/pro/pics33/jessica_alba.jpg <- wow !!

that is also the link to virus
also i keeps putting a gay porn website as homepage on IE

the way i managed to fix it is to delete the windows\system32\userinit32.exe

also in registry i reput userinit.exe ( i think this is the original one) isntead of userinit32.exe

the OS i use is windows xp

actually, i ran avast manually and it never picked it up
also it only does the userinit32.exe thing, i checked for others, they are not there

but it does do the userinit32 thing 100% like the site says

Maybe it is a other  IRC Malware. If you still have it you can test it here: http://www.kaspersky.com/remoteviruschk.html

Besides raman's link, I suggest some others here.
See, specially, the section Ad-aware and Trojans Tools and System Security.
