I have been using AVG A/V for a long while now , in 2 1/2 years its caught and dealt with 1 virus (im on Win 98 se) but Friday after an online update and full scan it caught and healed a trojan horse called [email protected] (or PSW.hakey.A) . For the last 2 days ive been trying to find out information about it on the web but had no luck at all ,putting the file name into google got no results even symantec didnt know it .How can i find out about it ?

Have a look in the Hisotry and double check the name.

Sorry that didn't work. Try this go to click here and select Virus Information. In the search box type in psw and search.

I give up. The "click here" don't seem to be working anymore on this site. I copied and pasted the Address Bar (twice) but it doesn't work. So go to click here and click on Virus Information and in the search box type in psw and search. There are 44 matches.

Bitdefender doesn't show PSW click here

The PSW bit usually indicates its a Password Stealer.

However unless the correct name can be provided there no way of knowing the full capabilities.

In the original post, in brackets , it should have read PSW.hatkey.A ,not hakey .I have since found out it could be known as [email protected]@@Y.A
