I am hoping someone can give me some info on this virus that was detected when it was downloaded to my temporary internet files from a trusted TV listings site I have used for years. I am thinking it had to have come from an ad on the site as I had the site opened for a very long time before this happened but had just reloaded the time of listings on it. The ads tend to change when you do that.
My virus program deleted the file but since I had not closed out the site, it redownloaded immediately. I then closed the site which deleted the file since temp internet files are deleted when I close IE but since it is a site I use often, I would like to have some info on trojan.js.pakes.br and I cannot really find any doing a google search.
Does anyone know if it is dangerous or what it does if it remains on a system?
I am afraid to go back to that site, even though I know it has been virus free for years. I sent them an email alerting them to this and trust that they will soon take care of the problem.
For those who use the listings on zap2it.com, you might want to avoid it for a few days until the site has a chance for find and remove the problem. This can happen to almost any site and this one is normally a safe site, but give them a chance to fix the problem before going back to it.
I do not need help cleaning up my system as I know it was caught right away, but would appreciate the info I asked for above.
Thank you for your help
