funny.exe virus through msn messenger. Any idea wat's the virus?
Posted on 2004-10-12
It's been quite fustrating, especially at the lack of information on google for the virus, which I was infected by opening a file, funny.exe, sent to me via msn messenger. The worse thing is that you know the information is out there, since there a plenty of hits from chinese sites that concern this virus, but I can't seem to find any english sites that provide the info.
The file is "funny.exe" and Norton AV does NOT detect any virus, even after updating definetions. After I was infected, it tried to spread by sending the file to all my contacts in msn messnger.
I believe the name "threedegrees" is involved, since msn messenger refuses to close and states that it is being use by ie, outlook etc. However, this time, threedegress is added to the list. It seem like a taunt from the virus...
I would greatly appreciate any info on what's the virus and removal instructions, since Norton AV updated def cannot even detect anything.
