A Virus

  Stealth Mode 19:07 12 Apr 2003

Last night when I had finished looking on the Internet, HiFi Sites Only, I put my PC in to Standby. But it just 'hung', So I did a restart, when it had re-stareted my Anti-Virus pick up a virus. Called:BKDR-VB-AX and it was found in C/:System Volume Information Restore.
Only 3 Hours earlier I had done a Full Virus scan and found nothing.
Has anyone else had this virus?
Where has it come from?
Do you know anything about it?

Just checked on McAfee site and nothing listed on there to suggest this is a virus.

Disable restore and run your AV to clean it if possible .

BKDR normally indicates `backdoor`.

Sophos list Troj/vb-ax , Kaspersky list Backdoor.VB.ax .

Try a free Trojan scanner from LockDown click here to see if it can find it .

No telling where it came from , IRC , dodgy downloads , dodgy email........
