Now like i didn't have enough trouble.. A few days ago i was chatting with a friend in windows live messenger...When i saw this message: This is a picture of us can i put it in my facebook(myspace..i don't remember)..anyway..
and after that message appeared a .zip...
As i was talking to a friend..i thought that it would not be harmless..so i extracted the "pic" which was an .exe i think...but definitely not a picture format (jpeg,bitmap etc.)
Stupidly enough i executed it.. (yeah i know..lame)
And when i executed it it disappeared from my desktop where i had it saved..
So i realised something was really wrong..
I then asked my friend if he sent me anything..and he said no..and also that he was also sent a zip from me..i think..So
I have searched the web for any info on this..And found that it is a very quick spreading trojan , virus i still haven't figured out..which inserts to your system and then sends zips to all your messenger contacts..with a large variaty of reasons..like "hey this is a picture of us..my sister thought you shoud see this.." and smurf like that..
Anyone know how to get rid of it?
I have uninstalled the messenger because when i re-installed it after a few failed attempts to clean my system with all sorts of anti-spyware and anti-viruses, when i connect to messenger it starts sending zips to my contacts..
BE VERY CAREFULL GUYS..IT SPREADS VERY VERY QUICKLY..!
And yes i know..it was very lame of me to run the .exe....
