homeland security virus
Posted on 2013-11-28
I have a computer that I was told had the Homeland security virus. the user said when they booted the computer it went right to the Homeland security screen telling them they had to pay to unlock their comuter.
I brought it home and turned it on... Nothing happened. No traces of that virus.
I connected it to my internet and still nothing. Rebooted and still nothing.
I ran malwarebytes, spybot, norton 360 (this is what the user has) and nothing was detected.
I know this guy isnt lying and didn't attempt to remove it himself b efore he gave it to me.
The computer runs ok for a winxp maching with 1.5 GB of memory.
What gives? Can anyone tell me what files to look for and reg settings?
There is nothing in the run key except 3 expected entries.
Any help would be appreciated.
