    No, but I'm sure www.symantec.com would have a whole lot of info on it by now.

    It's KLEZ, and it's the reason my sister is dual booting with Mandrake. Every windows machine in my family's little network got infected by it a couple months ago. There was some free console program specifically targetted at klez that got rid of it though.
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    AVG got rid of it on my friends systems with no problem. Stupid little virus anyhow. Basically harmless. It tries to be harmful but its crappy and I've yet to hear a report about it succeeding. It tries to delete doc, jpg, and a few other files on the sixth of every month. Never works. A friend had it for months and never knew it.

    Solution to not get it: Dont use IE. It uses a 'Execute Anyway' loophole in IE if I recal correctly.

    See this thread for my experiences with infected users.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
