Yesterday I was really surprised when ZA Pro completed a Virus Scan and reported 2 High Risk, Bad News Viruses. BOTH were 32.Swizzer. Unable to Repair, Isolate or Delete It took me 30 mins to find any sense on the net about them and only a trawl of Symantecs Library showed this Known Trojan..........Frankly I am surprised because it turns out "Swizzer" was reported to be inside NOT_MINIME_Universal Uninstaller..***** sent to me by email from lop.com as well as in the U.U.I downloaded from their site 18 Months ago, and a full HJT fix was done by BC afterwards..........(for other nasties as well)
Removal was simple (I hope), just deleted the Two Offending files..1 a Zip file and the other the Unzipped File...emptied RB and Sys Res.
Why did this Trojan only get reported Yesterday, when I do a full scan every week.......ZA Pro
A squared and other progs did not find it
It is not a widely reported Trojan, but from what I can read it is a bit nasty......Mentions of "It may be downloaded by one programme/Owner, but can be controlled by another"....Sort of Lost me!!
Any comments would be nice as I will admit to being somewhat confused.........
