SERV-Me Trojan

  eddie937 16:54 18 Feb 2004

i know that u have had hundreds, if not thousands of threads discussing trojans, however i have run 'the cleaner' and it has said my computer is free from trojans but whenever i connect to the internet norton internet security says it has blocked a trojan.
it says 'attempt to connect to local computer using the SERV-Me trojan horse blocked.'
can anyone tell me where on my computer it could be hiding.
looking forward to your answers.
thanks, Eddie

Funny NAV doesn't detect it or does it?

Well if NIS detects it on the way out why doesn't NAV step in and remove it? Seems stupid that 1 piece of software provided by Symantec can detect this trojan and another bit can't.

Conclusion - NIS is giving off a false alarm due to another piece of software using a port used by this trojan.

Suggestion - Update NAV, do a full scan. If nothing found, relax. If really worried that ask Symantec why NIS detects the trojan and NAV doesn't....
