05.05.2003 - Messenger Virus



View AntiVirus related news. A recently discovered virus codenamed Win32.NiceHello.A@mm is spreading as an e-mail attachment and targets MSN Messenger users.

The virus sends email messages (in the format described above) to the user's MSN/.NET Messenger's contacts to mass-multiply itself. It also tries to send a notification email:

From: name@domain.com
To: username@domainname.com

Subject: Hello world have a nice day
Body:

Eventually, a message box with "Microsoft Windows XP or greater required!" appears.
How to see if you're infected:
• The file "systemsys64dvr.exe" or "system32sys64dvr.exe" exists in the Windows folder.
• There's a registry entry "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\System 64 Driver for Games" = "sys64drv.exe".

Delete this file and registry entry to disinfect.
