Hello everybody,
I'm looking for some informations about a virus called newcpuspeedcheck.
A Google search gave me only few links about it.
The virus is seen as a trojan by Panda, and is not detected by Windows Security Essentials.
It infected our network recently, probably via a USB stick.
What I noticed is that it creates hidden/system folder C:\newcpuspeedcheck, containing some files.
A cpufix.exe is launched at the computer startup.
Also, many shortcuts, named "SomeFolderName Copy.lnk" are created everywhere, intended to run a command line exe from the C:\newcpuspeedcheck directory (I don't have the exact command because I deleted all shortcuts).
Any idea about what is that, and what could it do to a computer ?

Thanks in advance for any help.
John M.

Hi friend, I have studied this new threat and implemented a vaccine in my USB File Rescue program.




Just run the program, place the letter of the Removable Disk and let the program do its thing. :)
I hope it helps you,
