    Antivirus Pro

    Greetings all...been a while since I've visited.

    I have a question, I'm hoping someone might be able to help me with. I accidentally contracted the Antivirus pro trojan / spyware earlier today (oops). I got rid of it after a few minutes, but I saved the executable that was downloaded to my computer.

    Does anyone know how I might be able to say unpack / decompile the file?

    I'm wanting to take a peak on the inside of this lovely program and see what makes it run. Unfortunately, using a resource editor doesn't give me much of anything.

    Thanks

    Very cool..I'll have to check those out.

    Is there anyway to find out what a .exe was coded in? For example..C++, .net etc etc?

    Or is the best bet just to try some different unpackers / decompilers till one works?

    Greetz.

    I haven't dabbled in reverse engineering in awhile.

    but usually it's just a matter of finding a decompiler/s that suit what you are trying to achieve, and stick with those.

    and it also helps to know a little info about how the object was coded, what sort of packing algorithm etc etc.

    also check out http://www.woodmann.com/forum/index.php

    the forum is pretty useful, and there are a few more urls that may help.

    a few stealth google searches may help you dig up more info about this Antivirus pro trjn.

    as i recall there is a fix tool for that particular piece of spy ware google antivirus pro removal tool that should point you in the right direction , i like finding a removal tool whenever possible because some anti virus/anti malware programs don't remove it completely also remember to disable system restore as i recall this piece of malware like to store itself there as well good luck
