Virus warning!
« on: November 24, 2002, 12:57:19 PM »
It seems a virus is spreading among the TUTS.
It's the worm W32.Klez.H@mm.

If you have received eMail by a TUTS during the last two days you should check and clean your PC as soon as possible.
First aid is a tool provided by Symantec, which you can download here:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.klez.removal.tool.html
More information about the virus:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.klez.h@mm.html

If you haven't got AntiVirus software running on your PC, you should install one, anyway.
The TUTS using a Mac are probably having a good laugh at the moment, as they aren't threatened by this kind of thing.

Good luck to all the PC-TUTS!

My PC is clean of the Kles thing , ive checked again , SO its obviously someones PC who has our names in there address book .  :x

Fleagles was good enough to point out that the Kles virus goes through your address book ( once in your pC ) and sends out e mails using peoples address's and not your own !!  its a nasty virus , and its annoying
cos i keep getting non delivered mail returned , even though i havent
sent any mails to the peoples  address .  :x

It so annoying to know that idiots make these viruses up just to Piss
everyone off ..... why do it to the normal run of the mill people eh ? :x

sickening !!! :evil:

I don't know if it is because alphabeticaly I am likely to be first in most address books but I am getting loads  :cry:

So far I have had Jock, Kaenga, Fleagle, Klaus, Karl Allen & TJ  so it is obviously someone with all these people in their address book :?

Jock your PC shold be ok because Fleagle loaded up the same anti virus that we have  :D

Kaenga

The virus attaches itself to the addresses in the address book of the infected PC, and then mails itself to other addresses in the same address book  :?

So it appears to be coming from those addresses which of course it isn't  :?

The infected PC's address does not appear on the email at all, that is why it is difficult to find out who's machine is infected  :cry:

If you go to the Symantec web site there is an encyopedia of Virus's very scary how many there are, but it explains how they work.
