Threaded View
Friend of mine sent a text message this morning saying he'd had his XP wiped
on both drives due to X virus. He asked me to check whether there is any
warning on it. I've checked at Norton, McAfee, googled it and trawled
through here and drawn a blank. Anyone ever come across it? The guy is doing
computer programming at Uni. so he's no mug. However, I can't find this
thing.

TIA

If his drives were wiped, what's left to tell him what did it?

I think he was hoping for some chance of recovery.

What malware package called it the 'X' virus?   Sometimes (okay often)
different vendors give the same malware different names.

Exactly !

Until backed with facts, it is purely a rumour on the Grape Vine !
