    GOTTA LOVE W32 BLASTER WORM.

    Dirty this is what I was talking to you on AIM about.

    Its a nasty trojan that has been infecting systems since monday. Its called MSBLAST. It's an exploit on Microsoft Windows XP.

    In the actual code for the worm there are two messages. "Bill Gates why do you let this happen?" and "STOP MAKING MONEY AND FIX YOUR SOFTWARE!"

    Removal/Prevention Guide:

    Download Adaware, Scan for spyware, remove the regkey data miner Alexa and possible Orion.

    Search your computer for MSBLAST.exe erase everything that comes up.

    Go to:


    http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/8...980-x86-ENU.exe

    Install the security patch.

    Do not restart your computer at anytime during this.

    Goto START>RUN>MSCONFIG goto start up and disable msblast.

    Restart your computer.

    yes ive been getting that shit.
    my mom (who knows nothing about computers) told me she got some type of prompt telling her she needed to update and she did it, then it needed her to restart, so she did..and ever since then it started happening. i have no idea what shes talking about.

    can they really put a virus inside of an mpg, avi, mp3 file?
    i always assumed that it wasnt possible.

    i consider myself pretty good with the computer, especially with using the internet, and i was stumped at this rpc thing. i had no idea it was a popular thing going around. how was it being spread?

    thanks for the thread, taper.

    i just did some research and it is impossible to be infected through a media file. you cant get a virus through an mp3, mpg, avi, gif or jpg simply because only software which is built for those types of things can view them and arent designed to read malicious code.

    for example, if you have some code that deletes win.ini or something, windows media player wont be able to perform the command.

    dont scare me, i like porn.
