    AOL virus

    Hello.
    Someone I know has caught a virus through AOL.Here's what he wrote to me:

    I clicked a link on somebody's AIM profile and it gave me a virus, and i got rid of it. But the link that i clicked on invaded my screen name and whoever clicks it gets the virus too. I uninstalled AIM and then installed it back, and i even got a new AIM screen name, but after a couple days of having the new screen name it invaded this one too. What is this, and what do i do?? please email me back and explain something to me.


    I think she's infected with AOL.Trojan :

    Does anyone have any suggestions as of what she should do to remove the virus?

    dude...you just wrote a whole "tutorial" about a virus...I guess you suddenly forgot...anyways, here's the info you need:

    http://www.imchaos.com/alert.asp

    Do NOT click on links that say something like "whoaa look at what i found click here" or "I can't believe I found %n's Picture"

    There appears to be a new virus/worm/spyware that is spreading via AIM profile links.

    Apparently, malicious code is being placed on computer systems when victims visit either realphx.com or talkstocks.net (there may also be other domains).

    This code is executed either when a visitor OKs at the prompt or automatically if the visitor has not patched Internet Explorer for known vulnerabilities (see Windows Update to patch your system).

    Once the victim has been infected, their AIM profile will be changed to reflect only a link to one of the above mentioned sites with the text description as "Whoaa...look at what I found, click here" (there may also be other text descriptions). If the victim attempts to reset their profile, the link will reappear after a reboot or restart of AIM.

    Due to variations of the virus/worm/spyware it may take a little work to completely clean it from your system.

    Below are some links to removal tools we found (but did not test) followed by some manual instructions that were posted on other sites:

    Manual Removal Instructions

    BTW...seriosly man...i think you're a joke. First you know how to writte a tutorial about a virus and then you dont kno what the deal is with a virus that you got...c'mon...get real.

    These are your tutorials. You're tryin to tell us that you wrotte a whole tutorial on MSBlaster worm, and how to remove it....and you wrote a whole other tutorial on how to make my computer "immortal" and keep it safe from viruses and such...then then you went on and wrote another tutorial on NTFS ADS viruses.....but suddely you cannot get rid of a silly little malicious code in AIM...
    Look, normaly I dont give a shiz about other people's businesses and what they post. That is until you try to take us for fools. You've got 41 posts and 3 tutorials. most of those posts were responses to your tutorials. Here's the deal kid...making tutorials is not going to get you APs...you have to earn them. Coming up with "copied" tutorials is even worse. There's a good reason why you have so many negative antipoints and continuing in this path will get you banned. Even if you think you can come up with a new nickname and rejoin AO...the same thing will happen if you dont learn to be original.

    My 2 cent. Many of you might disagree but this is just the way I feel about it.


    [Edit] http://www.antionline.com/showthread...s&pagenumber=2
    Thats the link that was posted about the same topic. A little research would have gotten you the answers. a simple search on google with "AIM VIRUS" in the search bar came up with this result:http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...-8&q=AIM+Virus [/edit]

    Let this be a lesson. To all of the people readnig this, if you use ANY kind of online service, and or go online at all;

    QUIT ****ING CLICKING ON **** THAT YOU AREN'T SURE OF!

    Damn. that felt nice, like a cool mountain rain. and the messege is seriouse. dont be a jack ass and click on **** in people's profiles, and dont be a **** head and click on everything. **** happens when you click on ****, so do the right thing, dont click it!

    EDIT: i came up with a song that makes me think of what your jack ass friend was thinking:

    when a link is in someones profile YOU MUST CLICK IT!
    when i see a pop up add YOU MUST CLICK IT
    when im acting like a nad YOU MUST CLICK IT
    NOW CLICK IT, CLICK IT GOOD! WOOT!

    when pron pops up on your screen YOU MUST CLICK IT
    when your surfin through the web and you see a link YOU MUST CLICK IT
    *whooo tish*
    CLICK IT GOOD.
    when your surfin http://www.****MyPc.com
    and a pop up comes on your screen saying delete my files,
    YOU MUST CLICK IT!
    when mandraketux whips out his nuts
    YOU MUST LICK IT!
    "When in doubt, use Brute Force."

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
