Brought to me this morning is an XP system which has a brand new, undetectable variant of either Virux or Virut.

I have restored the registry to 9/10/2009 (thank you ERUNT!), deleted several trojan (.SYS) files using a Dos boot CD, and scoured the system; even running AVG's Virut removal tool (V1.22+) and nothing is detected (period) But; even in Safe Mode, running Sysinternals Autoruns, it starts to load, dissapears, and the Autoruns.exe file is then corrupted. Even better, it has been set so I can't copy it to send out for analysis!

The owner of the system was initially attacked on 9/30/2009.

Virux and Virut are bad already. Possibly most people's worst nightmares in terms of computer viruses (along with sality - i think :thumbsup: ? ) so any new varient isn't welcomed!

Wow... that is scary :thumbsup:
A virus destroyed one of my older computers, it was infected with the old Virux. Now i'm hoping to work in the field of Computer Secuity.

What I can't fathom is how ZIEF.PL keeps coming back online even though that is where the HTML version of the attack pulls the code from!

Was The 2003 F*ggot Worm In This Virus Family?

If So Virux Dates Back Way Longer Then We Had Thought!

Freaky!
