Exploit-MS06-004.gen


Recommended Posts

I get up this morning and see that my weekly scan for viruses yeilded a bunch of trojans named Exploit-MS06-004.gen. The freaky thing is they were ALL found in my NOLF2 folder, in various textures. McAfee deleted the infected files automatically, so of course I went into panic mode and assumed NOLF2 wouldn't start, but it did and all is well... so far. Does anyone know anything about this particular virus thingie?

Not sure why you got it in there.

This trojan is known as a password stealer program so hopefully it wasn't after your CD key.

McAfee gives false positives all the time. It's entirely possible that it ID'd normal files as viruses. It's also typical of McAfee to notify you of viruses AFTER they're already safely on your hard drive. WTF good it that?!?!? And it's a serious resource hog! Ever checked all the processes that McAfee has running in your Task Manager, and added up the memory and proc. load involved? Scary!!!! You should quit paying for subpar antivirus software, and start using AVG for free, IMHO!

Yep, that's why we have it. Free is good. Along with the anti-spam we get other free features too. Comcast still sucks the big one for many reasons, but at least it's better than Adelphia.

Lod, you just have to combine what you know with what you read from Bella. This leads to the obvious conclusion that "the big one" translates directly to "all the money from my wallet." Simple deduction, my friend!
