MSN Photo Virus

30 Oct

I got an invitation from my fren today to receive a photo album in zip file.

Lucky enough that I’ve already aware that this is a nasty virus circulating on MSN. This virus sends out one of the following messages with a file named image.zip

Once the virus is active on your PC a bot will then procede to send out the file with a message to all of your MSN contacts.

This virus is smart enough to send along messages like ..

“wow! look at this old picture i found….”

” Take a look at the new pics already! :p”

etc

etc

So if you happen to get invitation to receive this kinda file via MSN, do ignore it.

HOW TO REMOVE

Found 3 solutions on web.. not sure whether it works though. (try at ur own risk)

STEP 1
Delete registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
“nVidia Display Driver” = “nvsvc64.exe”

 

STEP 2
Restart WINDOWS

STEP 3
Delete virus files:

%System%\nvsvc64.exe
%temp%\imageXX.zip
%temp%\XX.exe
