Im running Windows XP SP2, and avast!, since last morning there have been multiple detections of an unspecified variation of the Luder worm. Since I saw the warning before having to leave, I couldn't do much then.
So, all I did was disconnec the computer from my home network.
As for other AV programs, I have ZoneAlarm Pro, a², Ad-Aware, Spybot, CCleaner and SpywareBlaster. Unfortunately, I haven't run active scans for 1-2 weeks, as I am not using that machine so much, after I bought a new one.
After doing a Google search for the virus, I saw that Dr.Web Scanner was quite recommended, and the results were:
6 instances of "Trojan.Starter.171", which is apparently another name for Luder.
1 Backdoor and a Dloader, apparently from a heuristic analysis (on a hidden folder which I didn't recall existing)
1 "Program.PopcapLoader (for pop-ups? None showed up)
Later, I did a full scan with avast! and it found 300+ detections on exes and etc.
Also, is it possible that I got this from a shared network connection? Because my internet connection setup is a bit weird: We have a shared internet link, which is then shared in a network, allowing all the condos a connection. It is, at least without specific tools, impossible to access other computers shared folders & etc, but I can "see" them on the network. And, in addition to that, I have a network switch(not router), which then divides this connection further, so I can have 2 computers online.
It seems you guys are very busy, is there another forum you can recommend?
