P2P Networks Infected With Downloader-UA.h Trojan

Posted by cotojo on May 9, 2008


Half a million computers have been infected with Downloader-UA.h trojan since the beginning of May 2008 which has prompted McAfee to declare the latest Trojan threat the most significant malware threat since 2005. This has also been verified by other anti-virus vendors as a security risk.

    Megan – It would help to know what antivirus you scanned with.
    You could download ClamXav or iAntivirus and scan with either of them, ClamXav being the better of the two.
    Hope this is of some help,
    Regards,

    Hi everyone, I seem to be experiencing the symptoms of this virus (all mp3s corrupted) yet I scan with AdAware and Malwarebytes Anti-malware AND AVG 8.0 and i cant seem to detect it. I dont use P2P programs but I did run a program that came from cracks.ms , which I wont be doing again.

    If my programs wont detect it, is it safe to assume I dont still have the virus and can use that MP3Fix program to repair my mp3s?

    Any suggestions appreciated

    Tammy – It should work as long as you follow the instructions and also run any other anti-virus and other anti-malware programs that you have.
    Limewire is one of the main ones for spreading this trojan, so in future don’t download any exe files or those that prompt for installation, if you do, do NOT run them simply delete them.

    I’m going to try this now. It was Nickelback Phototgraph that did it to me off of Limewire.
