Hi:
I am a newbie, but my anti-virus just caught a new virus--Panda Virus, and eliminated it from the infected email.
Can anyone give additional information about this new virus.
Thanks,
Steven.

The tech is in

Sorry, but maybe I misread the page and our company has Panda Anti-Virus software (I am not sure) that found a virus and alerted me to it, but thanks for your comments.
Steven.

It is called Windows.....LOL (could not resist)
hehe... windoze somtimes gives me more headache more than some of the viruses & trojans out there...how sad... :no:

anyways...
what you had there was a Trojan sometimes know as Delwin.B. It basically tries to delete stuff in your C:/Windows .It tries to get to WIN.INI and WIN.COM first so Windoze cant start...when you try to reboot or hit CTRL : ALT : DEL it proceeds to wipe out everything else...fortunately, due to the bad design of deployment scheme for this trojan, it doesnt do much most of the time and is wiped out by antivirus way before it runs( thats if you have antivirus)..

Have any more q's just PM me or sumthin....

peace :wavey:

Hey Doonz...
I read up on Delwin.B after one of the ppl. at one of the sites we support kept repeatedly getting email with some annoying msg about pandas..email was stripped before it reached the mailbox..log showed that a zip file was attached to the email and besides containing "Delwin" it had some garbage files...I dont know if that was just some stoopid azz trying to send us a virus hoping that it would fall through cracks and someone would actually open it or what... but it was annoying dough :upset:
