Avoid Getting Trojans (A Deadly PC Virus)

We’re having difficulty with one of our computers, the one we normally use to write these blog posts. We apparently got a Trojan last night, and when we turned it back on this morning to post there were all these popups trying to make us download anti-spyware software. (it kept saying that we didn’t have spyware protection, when we have both McAfee and Ad-Aware) Unfortunately, it shut down that computer’s automatic protection, allowing it to continue doing things on our computer.

We’ve now scanned it several times, and these are the file names we’ve come up with (you can use this for reference if you get a Trojan. These are the file names you want to delete. If you find anymore names that are not listed here, please notify us through a comment so we can add it):

  • iebtm
  • iebtmm
  • iebtu
  • iebu
  • wcm
  • wcs /!\
  • wcu
  • Warning Center
  • Windows Safety Alert

We suggest that you DO NOT download any of the anti-spyware things that they want you to. That is the virus, and it is hard to get rid of. Also, while the virus is still on your computer, do not type in any passwords, or access your emails. Also, do not download any anti-spyware that says unknown publisher. Lastly, here are two ways you can tell if a virus is on your computer (if either of these come out true, scan your computer ASAP):

  • If somehow an internet toolbar was downloaded, without you doing it.
  • If your homepage has been changed and you’re the only one who has access to your computer, that is a sure sign that you have a virus.

Best Regards,
