    Sent them this malware over a month ago. Sent a copy to AVG
too, since it was creating havoc here in town. I don't even use AVG,
but I figured, vaccine your neighbor and you are half cured.
    AVG had a fix in two days.
    Avast still identifies my Clamav on-demand scanner as a
dangerous trojan ... but as to this nasty little REAL
virus/trojan/malware type:

And what do you expect us *users* to do about the Avast product?  Us
being awake is going to make Avast do something why?

    The message was for them. And yes, they do read this little
newsgroup.
    Well, Avast survives due to user opinion. If it doesn't, it
doesn't.. Is that a pleonasm ? Have to look it up in my Monty Python
dictionary. :P

What does it do?

Those results indicate many different things - some say trojan, some say
virus, some say worm, some say packed generic malware...

    It makes all your system files hidden, itself included. It
copies itself to the windows/system32 folder with another name. It
alters your registry settings, opening your shares. It attempts to
access an external website (no- I can't remember which, I had a lot of
trouble removing it, but I'll send you a copy if you really want to
suffer it). It puts a file called Kuh or something similar on every
hard drive.
    It messes up the shell extension. And , of course, it makes an
autorun.inf and copies itself on any pendrive inserted in the PC.
    It's over half a megabyte of executable !!!
    Nasty little (?) thing.

    I suspected it because my pendrive took a little longer to be
read. You can see it easily with a dir /a from a command window. that
was how I knew I was infected.
