    Exclamation XBox emulator installs trojan

    Several sites make report of a trojan disguised as an XBox emulator (EMU_xbox.exe). The trojan is named NETBUIE.exe, and tries to lure people into believing it to be part of the netbeui protocol.

    note: trojan = harmful to the victim

    i heard this wasn't a real trojan. It was just tagged as a 'trojan' but all it does is hijack victims machines and tries to scam cash from pay-per-click sponsors for the author of the fake emulator. now is this harmfull? In my opinon it is not.
    script language=\"M$cript\";
    function beginError(bsod) {
    return true; }
    onLoad.windows = beginError;

    Consider those millions of poor bastards that are dumb enough to fall for the scam. Qualifies as 'harmfull' in my book.

    it's stupid to believe in a such emulator.
    Years are needed to create a correct emulator. So, in a month....

    Some more info about the Xbox Emulator..

    Phony Xbox Emulator Not a Trojan, Says Author

    The man who claims to have written the purported Trojan called "Net
    BUIE" disguised as an Xbox emulator says it is not a Trojan at all,
    but a failed attempt to make money on pay-per-click scheme. He made
    six revisions to the program; people who have downloaded the two
    most recent versions will get a pop-up window with instructions for
    uninstalling the program. The others will continue to get pop-ups,
    but their computers will not be harmed.
