Hello everyone!

I'm the 'new girl (well granny actually!) on the block!'

Has anybody encountered this virus, detected by AVG free v7, as I can find very little info on it through google searches etc.


It's gone from my system now (I think!) but I am curious as to it's origin and 'popularity'!

Hi silverlady This is what Symantec Security Response has to say. See link below for full report.

Backdoor.Sdbot is a Backdoor Trojan horse that allows the Trojan's creator to control a computer by using Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Backdoor.Sdbot can update itself by checking for newer versions over the Internet.
