What is this??

Twice in the last 24 hours my PC has been attacked by something that my anti-virus software has identified as a "Trojan Horse". Can anyone please tell me what this is and what it is trying to do?

Not all attacks are what they seem. I disconnected my broadband modem and forgot to reconnect it. I was still receiving security alerts from Norton personal firewall. I know that one needs to be aware of the dangers on the web but can't help feeling that the AV vendors hype it a little to maintain their market share.

If your antivirus software has detected/blocked it, then don't worry.

I work at a recruitment ageny for offshore engineers etc and get tons of CV's which have nasties attached. As long as your AV software is up to scratch you don't need to worry about it.
