CHCP.EXE Petch Worm Live Messenger
« on: August 31, 2007, 09:19:34 AM »
Alert!
My desktop was infected by chcp.exe (Petch Worm) which hijacked Live Messenger and transmitted messages.
This is NOT chcp.com which is the Code Page Changer for MS-DOS.
Google for chcp.exe en find all about it.
Avast! Home don't help here at this moment.

Can you send the samples to virus@avast.com ?
You can zip and password the files... Inform a link to this thread and the password used.
You can send the files to Chest and, from there, resend to Alwil for analysis.
Thanks for helping to improve avast detection.
