Does Anyone Know This Malicious Attachment
Posted on 2010-09-20
I just received one of those spam emails that had an attachment inside it from what looked like a person I recognised. The attachment was a not too unfamiliar report.html name and I opened it with firefox.
After clicking on the attacment, a line of text appeared in the browser along the lines of please wait a few seconds. At this point I right clicked the attachment and ran an AVG scan on it which reported Malware.
Additionally A window popped up which appeared to be Windows Firewall asking me if I wanted to block Windows Explorer. I clicked "Block" and then shutdown the computer.
I re-booted and all seems to be OK but the Windows Firewall message is displayed asking if I want to Keep Blocking Windows Explorer.
Does anyone understand the code below and know if this is a virus / trojan that I can find out what it does and try to remove it ? I have run a full AVG scan but it doesnt report a virus is present.
