A New Beagle Virus?
« on: March 19, 2004, 05:30:56 AM »
Hello Everyone!

I think there is a new Beagle virus on the loose.  
(Win32.Beagle-gen1) Thankfully, the superb
Avast program caught it during my daily hard
drive scan, but it can't be repaired.  I would
simply delete the file, but the file is my
Outlook Express/Inbox.dbx.   When I moved it
to the Virus Chest, naturally all of my InBox
Messages went there too.  

Does anyone know of a suitable method for getting
rid of this virus without deleting the entire Inbox?
Thankyou.   BTW.. I LOVE Avast!.  It's light years
ahead of Nortons AV.  (RIP)   :)

I was wondering about this too.  I think it is a new version.  Win.32.Beagle-gen1 showed up on my email too.  Anyway Avast stopped it :)

Hi,

pause avast's shield, and then delete the infected Mail from within Outlook.
Empty trash, and then compact all Mailfolders -> this should fix it

reenable avast

Just cleaned my computer from Beagle-gen and Beagle-S. Avast detected them! Just I had problem that it used to reappear. I succeded to delete Beagle completely after altering the registry only. I had to delete the key "direct.exe". After deletion virus tried to spread, but I satrted scanner and stopped it loosing several .exe files from system folder. Luckilly these files where calc.exe and similar. Anyway AVAST is the coolest AV I have ever seen.

Thanks to everyone regarding the feedback to my
initial mentioning of how the Beagle infected my
entire Inbox in Outlook Express.  

Thankfully, somehow the virus simply disappeared
on it's own, because I was unable to repair it using
the scanner.   ;D

Everyone take care!  This Avast! is THE BEST!!
