Hello All,


I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of this virus? I can find very little info on it.

My Microsoft Security Essential's caught and quarantined about twenty hits on my computer.

I think I have it removed now - but I was just looking for further info on what it does and if I need to be worried about it

morphing into something else. :devil:

MSE says it is a Severe Virus  - but I didn't have much of a problem getting rid of it,

so I'm a little nervous about it coming back to haunt me (GRIN).

Any info of this virus out there?


Thanks :idea:

Without knowing exactly what and where it was detected/removed its impossible to go into specifics, but this is usually a name Microsoft gives to a certain type of malicious javascripts that may run on certain sites. I'd suspect that your AV caught them when you were accessing possibly compromised sites.


You can find a bit more information here: http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/threat/encyclopedia/Entry.aspx?Name=Trojan:JS/Seedabutor.B#tab=2


Again, I can't be sure, but its likely the malicious scripts were intercepted before they could make any changes to your computer.

regards, Elise

Hi Elise,

Thank you for your response.

I did see that on Microsoft's website - but it doesn't really tell you much.

I guess I will wait and see if it wreaks havoc on me (grin).


Best Wishes,
