Trojan detected : JS/Exploit-BO.gen

  VNAM75 22:26 15 May 2007

My Mcafee AV just detected this trojan. Has anyone had this before and what are the risks? Some information I found on the Mcaffee website below. I'm concerned where it mentions "bank password stealer" at the bottom

Virus Characteristics
-- Update April 25, 2007 --

A malicious website linked from a Google sponsored link, was found to be hosting multiple web exploits. The website hosted at click here{hidden}.org contained a frame that is linking to click here{blocked}, where the actual exploits and malware are hosted.

The main webpage that is hosting the cocktail of exploits, when browsed using Internet Explorer, was proactively detected and blocked as JS/Exploit-BO.gen by VirusScan when script scanning is enabled....


At the time of writing, the malware installed was found to be downloading a bank password stealer and can be detected as in the 5018 DATs.

What is your question?

If McAfee picked it up then I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Do a full virus and spyware/malware scan.

phono, thanks.
