cant shake the NYXEM worm
Posted on 2006-04-21
I have recently contracted this damn thing by the strangest of all possible circumstances. Our company virus solutions expired on Jan 11 of this year, and the damn worm came out on the 16th. So, needless to say, no protection for us.
I've scoured the web looking for some decent advice on how to scrub this thing off and can't seem to do it. I have restored our subscription and manually updated some of the machines in the company (about 1/3). the problem is that once I scrub a machine, it comes back.
I have tried the following things:
regedit- removed a few added keys
scheduled tasks - removed any additions and shut off service
deleted all the damn zips that were hiding all over
updated virus definitions
I have tried some other things too. What I want, and I'll pay cash, is something that I can load, run, and not have to do all this manual crap. Is it too late once this thing gets in the door? Or is there anything in hell I can do to stomp this thing out?
