    Angry Worm exploited system


    I am running XP with nav, spybot, th, adaware, and cyberscrub. I got a worm entitled "I-Worm 97.teocatl"....it was removed but not before erasing everything in my documents. In addition, I have been unable to find out any information on it.

    My problem is that 2 folders are created in My Documents - neither has a name-just random letters - and there is nothing in them. I delte them but when I restar the computer-there they are again.

    Here is hijack this:

    Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
    MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)

    if you don't know what exactly iespell is get rid of it......

    Further.... That script has got to go (O8 - Extra context menu item: Post To &WP : Right Journal - java script:doc=external.menuArguments.document.......), unless you know exactly what it is...... The rest looks fine but that doesn't mean it is. Get rid of the iespell and the script and see what happens.
    Don\'t SYN us.... We\'ll SYN you.....

    The I-Worm 97 and its variants were/are used to damage/erase data bases.
    The 97 refers to its roots as a macro-virus that attacked Word 97 and the
    other MS 97 Office Software such as Excel, Access, etc
    Connection refused, try again later.

    i tell this to other people, and i accept all offensive remarks. Norton isnt the best antivirus
    to use, for it has some bugs in it that will cause u problems. i had norton sys security and it would
    reboot my comp without warning every 5 minutes or so. i miss the old thunderbyte AV years ago
    things changed so much

    I guess this is for Karmine?


    i miss the old thunderbyte AV years ago
    It was a cold winter's morning in early 2000...........the Millenium Bug had failed to strike...but I had just scored $6580 bonus for "being on duty".............the local publican, an excellent gentleman from the county Roscommon (Republic of Ireland) met me after Mass (a Christian religious thingy)........we went to his house, where I examined the contents of his kids' computer (and a bottle of straight malt )

    All sorts of stuff had happened.............................shrunk window, proggies would not run........

    It turned out that his 1996 version of Thunderbyte was running in the background, and killing anything with a year 2000 date!!!

    I think that Norton bought Thunderbyte?


    I think that Karmine is an old fart like me?...........probably uses 80 column punch cards instead of postit notes?
