Hi,

Is anyone familiar with this virus? "JS/Snz.A" (W/O quotes). What does it do?

How do I get rid of it? I have Verizon Online Security Suite.

Thanx

Apparently this is a fake virus... Never heard of it - not sure what to make of it. :thumbsup:

Can you provide a specific file name associated with this malware threat and if so, where is it located (full file path) at on your system?

Sorry Quietman7 I can't. It came up as a warning from the Antivirus in Verizon Security as 2 attempts; 1st attempt, deleted. 2nd attempt, infected. Nothing seems to be wrong, so far except that I've been getting these Update Notices supposedly from Verizon that my Antivirus needs to be upgraded which I think is bogus because I went to the Verizon website and everything seems to be in order.

You can always get a second opinion by performing at least one of these online Virus scans:
(The following require Internet Explorer to work. Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
BitDefender Online Scanner <- Add a check by "Autoclean" and choose the option to "Quarantine".
ESET Nod32 Online Scanner <- Vista compatible but Internet Explorer must be Run as Administrator.
F-Secure Online Scanner. <- Follow the directions on the F-Secure page for proper Installation. (also checks for rootkits) (Vista compatible)
