I am working with a client who was hit with some sort of virus that messed with his .jpg files. He has cleaned up the virus successfully, but now we are trying to correct the damage.
Many (all?) of his .jpg files now have .html added to the end. If you double-click on them you are taken to a web site that wants money to clean up the problem.
I'm presuming that the direction to that site is enclosed in the corrupted files as other .html files are viewed properly.
I've tried renaming the files by deleting the .html extension, but they only generate errors in whatever I use to view them.
It appears to be the same symptom as described in: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Virus_and_Spyware/Anti-Virus/Q_28085247.html
I've attached three examples of this to illustrate the problem. I'd recommend extreme caution when opening them as they will take you to the site that I mentioned and I can make no claims as to what that site may try to do to your computer.
How do I retrieve the proper .jpg files from these?
