    A few hours ago, we announced here the release of a new tool, GABSharkY.
    If you have downloaded this program, please do NOT open it.
    It might contain malicious code - which should not cause damage to your computer.
    We should be able to give you more details when we can talk to the author.

    the staff.

    Update a la Mole -

    This program contains a very nasty worm called SDBOT, more info can be found, including removal instructions, at -

    This is a REALLY nasty virus. If you have ever run this program, immediatly do a virus scan.

    There's no reason for you to appologize kiczek, there's no way you could have known.

    Well I did download GABSharkY but i didn't get around to opening it and running it. Strange how being busy pays out in the end [​IMG] funny old world we live in.

    Wait... so it "It might contain malicious code" but that doesn't matter because it "should not cause damage to your computer."
    Or was that just worded totally wrong?

    I know it dropped the files mentioned on your website but what do they do. By chance have you figured out what there exactly doing?

    Heres a tidbit on the winupdate.exe (one of the files it drops), knew I had seen it before -

    Behold, the worm.

    This can be fairly nasty, so if you've run this proggy, immediatly do a virus scan.

    More info on other files coming.

    Okay, all the other files are just normal files to run the program, not malware of any kind, cept maybe loadex.exe, pretty sure ive seen that one before.

    This cannot be accidental, this little punk did it deliberatly.

    What a sly bastardo! people like that need shooting.

    If you want an easy way to remove it use the Stinger tool from NAI. Get it here. Its a great tool, and will scan for 43 major viruses. Get it to be safe.

    These instructions are for Windows XP ONLY!

    1. Close all open programs.
    2. Press Win+R. This brings up the "Run" dialog.
    3. Type "taskmgr" and press enter.
    4. Click "Processes."
    5. Highlight "winupdate.exe," then click "End Process," followed by "Yes."
    If you do not see this file, skip this step.
    6. Highlight "explorer.exe," then click "End Process," followed by "Yes."
    Your desktop will disappear.
    7. Go to "File" and select "New Task (Run)."
    8. Type "cmd" and press enter.
    9. Type the following commands, pressing enter after each one.
    Ignore any 'File does not exist" warnings.

    cd windowssystem32
    del explorer.exe
    del wpa.dbl
    del pnbak.dll
    del pnupd.dll
    del pnstrt.dll
    del winupdate.exe
    del native.exe
    del loadex.exe
    cd windows
    del explore.exe
    del explorer.exe

    10. Go to "File" and select "New Task (Run)."
    11. Type "explorer" and press enter. Your desktop will be restored.

    At this point your system should be cleaned.
    To verify that explorer.exe is correct, run Windows Explorer, browse to
    c:windows, highlight explorer.exe, right click it and select properties.
    Verify that BOTH the "Created" and "Modified" dates say either
    "August 29, 2002, 04:41:24" or "May 11, 2003, 21:12:10."

    big thanx and shouts go out to qoop on irc for taking the time to install this crap on his pc to work out how to remove it properly

    none of the registry entries listed on the trendmicro page were actually present in the registry too
