I got a message just a little while ago from a very old and trustworthy UO buddy, Plucky Duck. Apparently he got a random im from a fake UO:KR site.

Here's what he said "Warning, I recieved an ICQ couple minutes ago with only a site listed at x uo dot com Do NOT go to it. Norton has detected a virus/program inside the link that it surprisingly blocked. (LOL) the web page: uo - x dot com, is a backdoor trojan and your computer will open a fake Kingdom Reborn webpage, and then attempt to hack your computer. If you have been there, check your c: drive and delete all the copies of U.exe"

I just wanted to warn everyone so no one gets hacked .

Thanks for the warning.

I was just thinking people who do stuff like this need to be misled in RL, then have a virus backdoor trojan them.

I'll think I'll go watch "Tron" and figure out how I can get sucked into my computer and go on attack mode!

Not to down play the seriousness of a virus. Anyone thought about the intelligence of someone accepting messages and then going to a weblink from a total stranger :-/

Hi all,
I've been following this since it started last week with the ICQ account hackings. Well, if you use F-Secure you're in luck, after enough data was collected I submited a report and they're gonna nuke it.

Hello,

Thank you for your e-mail.

The files mentioned at the given site were found to be malicious. An
appropriate detection will be added in one of the next database updates
for the downloader as Trojan-Downloader:W32/Delf.BAD and the downloaded
malware as Trojan-PSW:W32/OnLineGames.MX.

Our latest database updates are available here:

http://www.f-secure....e/updates.shtml

Have a nice day!

BE SURE.


Good luck, and keep safe.

That's crazy. Sometimes I wish I would get something like that. I would love to get a copy of the virus/trojan, re-engineer it, and send it back to the person who sent it to me.

It's been a while, but I used to collect copies of virus code and take em apart. I wanted to see what was inside of them so I can see exactly what they attacked.
I am simply... Theros.
