My Norton Internet Security firewall popped up yesterday and informed me that voblaizdupla.exe was attempting to connect to the internet. Playing it safe, I chose No - Never. This executable file now sits in my list of programs, listed in the firewall as "blocked". But what is it? Does anyone know if it's a Trojan or malware of any kind? I have searched the knowledge bases at both Symantec and Microsoft, and they produce no results at all.
I did read the Lockergnome forum (found on Google) but as I know nothing about it, I wanted to get an opinion from a forum I trust (ie: this one!). What would you do about this trojan? It doesn't appear in my add/remove programs list. Is it safe simply to delete the executable file?
OK - since my last post on this topic I did the following yesterday evening (Friday):-
Downloaded, updated and scanned with Ewido. It found a few adware cookies, but nothing relating to voblaizdupla.exe .
Updated and ran full scans with all of the following: Norton Internet Security/Antivirus, Microsoft Windows Defender, Adaware SE and Spybot S&D. None of them identified this file as a threat.
Does anyone have any more information about this .exe file, please.
By the way, when I looked in my Internet Explorer Favourites list tonight, all the icone had been changed to a new one that I've never seen before. A globe with a page showing a smaller globe in front of it. Would Ewido have done this, or should I be worried?
Many thanks for anyone's thoughts on this whole topic.
As you suggested, the Prevx website says that Prevx1 will find and eliminate voblaizdupla.exe. I downloaded it, and ran a full scan - it reported finding nothing! I've checked again and bl**dy voblaizdupla is still there!
Can anyone tell me whether it's safe for me simply to delete the executable file, please?
Voblaizdupla.exe has gone! My earlier response to Acolyte was a load of rubbish - Prevx1 *did* remove the Trojan. The reason I didn't spot this was because I had been looking in my C:\Windows\PREFETCH folder for its signature - and this remained even after the executable file had gone. I have now deleted the contents of my Prefetch folder and this last remnant of the thing had gone. Phew!
Huge thanks to everyone for their help and advice.
