Hello BC

Has anyone ever heard of this, or have some reference to it.
HTML/Phishbank.AP! Trojan

One of my clients computers (2.6 p4, 1gig memory, win XP pro, only had sp1 though) become infected with the virus up above.

I searched on Norton, CA, Trend Micro, and none of these sites have any information about the virus. CA has different variants of the virus.

Why do i think i have this virus

Whenever the client access'es his email thru outlook express, he receives a popup thru windows messanger service stating that the above virus was detected in (certain folder) and has been deleted. He clicks ok on that, then his account becomes disabled, has no program options and nothing will load.

Once he reboots, the problem is fine, until he opens his outlook express again. Then back to square one.

I have ran Trend micro housecall, CA Inoculate IT, E-z Trust, Norton online scan, and none of these have been able to detect this virus.

So any thoughts, input would be GREATLY appreciated.



---sorry if this is in the wrong forum, please move if neeed be.

Try using a-squared. It is a trojan specific anti-virus program with a free download. Failing that you should submit a HiJack This log for review by our team.

Another excellent anti-trojan scanner is ewido. They have a free version as well. I have been using this product for a while and am very pleased with it. Good Luck.
