I'm a professional computer technician. I'm looking for a forum where I can share information with other techs about the most recent viruses and malware I find "in the wild". For example, one of the newest ones fools the user into thinking their hard drive is damaged by changing the file attribute to "Hidden" on every file on the drive. This can be reversed, of course, but it also somehow damages the user desktop in a way that I have yet to figure out how to reverse.

Anyway, this is the kind of dialogue I'm looking for. If such a place exists here, or you know of one elsewhere, I'd appreciate the assistance.

90% of being smart is knowing what you're dumb at.

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

As for the hidden files/missing desktop check out unhide.exe, which was created by our site owner. Also, have a read of this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic396978.html

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
