Trojan-Downloader.WMA.GetCodec compromises system by connecting to the internet to download fake video codecs via Windows Media Player and entince user to install them on the system.

threatexpert.com/report

Worm.GetCodec spreads via the Windows Media audio and video files as it modifies these files to have Trojan-Downloader.WMA.GetCodec characteristic.

If your anti-virus detects these infected files but cannot heal (clean), then it's going to remove them to protect your system.

Thank you for your reply!

..now its been around 20 days since i m searching for a solution..i have tried installing many of the famous and latest Antivirus, Spyware and Trojenware along with their update ..but no one was able to disinfect those files..infact many of them was unable to detect any infection!!! :flowers: only Quick heal Total security and Kaspersky2009 was able to detect the infection. Both suggested to delete the infected file giving reason: File cant be disinfected!
i really dont want to loose them,,thats the reason i m bearing them uptill now..
My qwery to you is :-
Will it be possible in future that any update of virus definition would able to Disinfect it?
What are the harms of living with this Trojen?
Is there any alternative to save those data!
:thumbsup:


Thank you once again.

Possible but that depends on the anti-virus vendor's technology.

What are the harms of living with this Trojen?

Your system will continue to be compromised and download more malware that may cause even greater damage. Further, infected machines connected to the Net are a security risk to everyone. When there are insecure computers connected to the Internet, malware spreads faster and more extensively, distributed denial-of-service attacks are easier to launch, and spammers have more platforms from which to send e-mail.

Is there any alternative to save those data!

If the files are infected and cannot be healed then they should be removed.

I recommend you get this machine disinfected as soon as possible.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". In Step 9 there are instructions for downloading the HijackThis Installer and creating a log. This is an automatic setup version which will install the program in the proper location.

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. 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.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

dear shr leon ... u r welcom friend
the idea is to convert the files from mp3 to mp3 again but clean ones
allok did that for me ... it just cut the virus from the files .... hehehehe ... nice idea i think :flowers:
u can get allok converter from this link:
it have its serial inside
after installing it start to convert all your infected file from mp3 ( infected) to mp3 ( clean ones ) into another folder
but be careful dear .. if u re-run the new cleaned files with the infected machine , then it will get the virus again
so , u must clean your PC first using an recently updated mcafee or any other one
if u need more info about these steps tell me ,,,
i make it and cleaned all my files without losing any of it ... it is a treasure :thumbsup:

mangood, I removed your link to download allok converter as it appears to be a cracked version of that program.

BC does not assist with or condone the use of crack and keygen tools. They are a violation of our BC Discussion/Message Boards Rules.

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.


The practice of using crack or keygen tools is not only considered illegal activity but it is a serious security risk.

Cracking applications are used for illegally breaking (cracking) various copy-protection and registration techniques used in commercial software. These programs may be distributed via Web sites, Usenet, and P2P networks.

trendmicro.com/vinfo

If you use those kind of programs, be forewarned that some of the worst types of malware infections can be contracted and spread by visiting crack, keygen, warez and other pirated software sites. In many cases, these sites are infested with a smörgåsbord of malware. Those who attempt to get software for free can end up with a computer system so badly damaged that recovery is not possible and it cannot be repaired. When that happens there is nothing you can do besides reformatting and reinstalling the OS.
