    "I can't find a the perfect word to attach to this website's image because it is out of this world. No matter what type of Computer Security System you are interested in, you'll find help and quality content here. The content is awsome, well displayed and well arranged. The menu and speed is excellent. Navigation, Response and Relevance are also the best of the best. I don't even have to mention the Links because i must admit that i have never seen any better. I will let other people say more or invent other words because it really does suit it! Keep doing what you are doing now because you are exactly on the right path! Thanks for sharing! BOOKMARKED!"

Email Danger – Free Web Tools

Posted by cotojo on August 22, 2007


Hot on the heels of the ‘Postcard From A Friend’, there is a new trend starting.

Below is a copy of an email I received – several copies of it too.

DO NOT open this email as it contains a Trojan Downloader, just Delete it

Virus Name:  JS/Psyme also known as HTML/Mht@exp

Spreads through Web Browsing, Downloads Code from the internet, Exploits your system and/or Software vulnerabilities.

Ensure your anti-virus is up-to-date.  I recommend AVG Anti-Virus (freeware)which catches these Trojans and opens  a ‘Threat Detected’ window.

If you are infected with this update your virus definitions file and reboot into Safe Mode, scan with anti-virus and also scan with ad-aware.

After cleaning reboot into normal OS and scan again to ensure there are no traces of the virus remaining.

Email will read similar to this, with some variations: 

Welcome Member,

Should you find that your website is compromised by the JS/Psyme virus, you will need to download your site – preferably to an external driive or if no external drive is available to a folder on your dektop and follow the instructions as above. 

Scan the folder containing your site in Safe Mode, make a note of where the virus is found and ensure prior to scanning that your anti-virus is up-to-date.  When complete and the infection is removed, reboot into normal OS and scan again.  If clean upload your site to your server.

Digg!
