    Saz got his acc back

    Post  Sazero on Wed Sep 02, 2009 2:10 pm

    Heyo all, so I've gotten my account back but I've been really busy. I blame gnomes, Teya blames my procrastinational skills. I'm cleaning up my laptop as we speak, and so far ad-ware found a worm that is generally spread through removable disks, like portable harddisks or USB keys. So that means I'll have to talk to my brother who borrowed my USB key.

    I also do not look forward to the damage done by the hacker.

    *UPDATE* Alright so the worm is a real bitch being Win32wormKido, and basically blocks my access to the sites that can remove it easely so ill probaly use tomorow to fight it.

    *Another Update* So I've done some reseach on the win32wormKido and that is one hell of a worm, you cannot in fact remove it, if you only have your infected computer to work with. It blocks anti-virus sites, Microsoft.com and disables auto update.

    It infects through USB keys, and automatically if auto run is enabled. It also downloads other malware and keeps itself updated too. This would be a real pain in the ass if I didn't have alot of access to other computers. So I'll probaly be on after I kill it.

    heh, no sooner had i logged on today i tried to run a virus scan..and nothing..i tried to update the virus thingy, nothing, tried to install a microsoft update, nothing...seems I have picked this up also...from where I have no idea as I use this comp exclusively for WoW and wow related things and havent used a usb stick or anything similar for months and months.

    If you could upload the mcrosoft malicious removal thingy aswell as an upto date Symantec/Norton virus definitions thingy that would be awesome,. as I really dont wanna have to re-install cos its such a pain in the ass to put everything back on again :s

    it seems only Ad-Aware can find it, and to kill it off you need to get the software removal tool from a clean pc.

    You also need to turn of system restore

    Also you shouldnt have gotten it from the internet since microsoft put a patch out to prevent against it
    also when you clean it take out your net cable

    The virus is also capable of going through servers, as a nest.

    ok, WoW computer is under going a full system restore, this laptop remains unaffected by anything even though this is the intrawebz work horse...no external devices have been used on the other , im sure i would remember sticking something into a usb port Razz and i doubt a new set of speakers would be able to carry the virus as theyre the only things attched to the computer itself...its also realatively new ( only bought in February ) so to have to reinstall already is a real PITA. Well back top waiting on the reinstall to finish and then get to starting the patch down laod for wow which will take a lifetime again :'(

    I've already take care of it on my own

    The worm places itself into the Windows folder and makes all users unable to delete any files in the windows folder (even admin) But basically get a clean computer download the removal softwave and then delete it.

    Clear signs of it is unable to go to any antivirus site or not being able to go to microsoft.com

    If you dont have access to a clean computer i can always mail the software to you just ask
