Need help identifying a virus - single digit graphic floats "on-top" of screen

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I work on a 2003 server that I have scanned with Symantec corporate AV
current to 10/19/06 which detects no infection (with no file
exclusions) but on which system a single graphic digit appeared "on
top" yesterday (cursor goes behind, task manager goes behind, etc.).  A
reboot made the digit go away, I took the server off any path to the
internet (although 20 local machines are connected to it), but a
different digit appeared "on top" today mid-day.

Anyone know what this is??  Thanks - mrf

It doesn't sound live a virus.

Just in case you can try scanning the Server with the following Multi AV
Scanning Tool.
If you don't want the server connected to the Internet, read the included PDF
file on using
a surrogate PC to download the latest engine and signature files and copying the
scanners to
the affected servers and scanning the system.


Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go
through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal
Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the
PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you
can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded
the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode
[F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run
in Safe
Mode.  It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive
PDF help
file.  http://www.ik-cs.com/multi-av.htm

I've seen this before. It was fixed by updating the video drivers.
