I came across the procedure of removing the Flu Burung virus on Blackyard Technologies. You will have to download several tools which are to be used to clean the virus and restore infected files. It is actually a variant of the more common Rungbu/Dizan virus which is spread by opening infected Microsoft Word documents. The more common type can be prevented by deleting infected Microsoft Word documents which have an .scr file extension (Screen Saver). The latest variant does not show the file type and is difficult to tell apart the infected files unless you use the tools provided. Spread the word and help prevent the spread of this virus.

Although this removal method is from an ICT company in East Africa, I don't know anything about W32.Rungbu Splitter or its creator.

The web site says ICT specializes in high quality web design, application development, animation and database development. I see no mention of malware removal expertise. Until we know more information, the staff at BC cannot endorse or recommend the tool. If you choose to use it, then use at your own risk.

LOOOOOOL quietman. You crack me up. The website is actually owned by a Support analyst who works in Kenya. The tool has been proven to work time and again. Don't be surprised that folks down in Africa can know a bit about malware removal. Share the knowledge an give the guyz at Blackyard credit. The tool really works! :thumbsup:

sizzla, I was not saying the removal method would not work. All I was saying is that BC cannot recommend it at this time.

We only refer our members to use tools created by trusted experts we are familiar with or from any of the major Anti-virus/Anti-malware vendors. This is a common practice at most online web communities. So if we don't endorse something, that is not a reflection on those we do not know or criticism of their technical capabilities.

You made a suggestion and I responded. Leave it at that. I are not going to engage in a debating contest.

We'd like to get some samples of this infection's files.

Please see pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.) Don't do any other scans just yet.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.
