My partner's PC has just being infected by Netsky. I've got it disconnected, but I would like to know if I can manage to see which emails had been sent while it was connected to the net.

Thanks,

I saw that, but what I want to know is if there is a log of all the activity of what's been done, like :
email sent to a, from b     email sent to b from c

Just to warn some people not to open those emails.


Thanks a lot

Well it may not be obvious to find out that but as you can see Netsky when it mails someone say from your email address or using your name it puts these in the subject

Re: Important
Re: Your document
Re: Your details
Re: Approved

and many more like this and they would also get an attachment in this email. You can just ask them to delete that email cos surely it would be that Netsky.

I have been getting emails with those subjects lately and I just delete it ..

Also not sure if you had seen this removal tool

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.netsky@mm.removal.tool.html

Since you never know to how many people the virus might have spread from your address book in your computer. just email them with a good recognising subject in the email and inform that about the virus

Thanks for the pts
