Crazy Virus call Win32.Virut.bx

Seems like this time it was a good opportunity to challenge a virus causing the Window XP, programs .exe file and pen drive infections goes mad! I couldn’t really able to find any good solutions to fix this problem especially when the stupid anti-virus programs also went berserk and trying to delete all the program .exe files that detect as a Trojans. This is the reason why it causing many program unable to run and ended up reformatting is the last solutions.

My colleagues told me not to waste the time fixing it and just reformat it. If every time I just using the reformat solutions. What the fuck do I learned from has been an IT Tech Support for so many years? I know its time consuming and don’t really care if they can’t fix it or not. But I simply wanted to try it because there are many freeware tools and shareware out there can be run for test removing it. There might be one or two of them might fix the problem and worth the try even if that mean of wasting time or unable to fix.

Check the Win32.Virut.bx threat information.

The Sign
If you want to know how this virus and trojons affect your Window. You will know right away.
1) When Window XP starts, you will encounter few pop up svchost.exe errors and that is the sign of infections. That kind of errors is related to your Window Auto update and system recovery cannot be easily turn off.

2) If you are smart enough, run the msconfig from run command and find if the services.exe (located in c:/window folder) run at startup. But don’t get confuse with the services.exe (located in system32 folder) run in the process as that is the original one, unless there are two of them then that is suspicious.

3) Your anti-virus went berserk cleaning and tries to delete or clean many infected programs .exe files.

4) Your pen drive will definitely infected by it. By most recommended, install a USB program that specialist in detecting removal storage hardware virus. There are freeware out there like USB Cop and MX One.

5) Users around you will have trouble surfing the internet because the virus have throw something on your PC doing the sending and receiving data.
This is currently the five sign of infections I could find in Window XP. If you have similar problem and more idea how it infect. Drop me a comments and I will update this post.

Like I said earlier, there are no best solutions to clean his shit out. My methods are simply using different kind of virus removal, adware and spyware removal tools to clean the infections. The only problem left I couldn’t solve is the PC will jam up the whole network I mention the fifth sign above. That is the only thing I can’t figure how it can be done. No results were found in Google or Yahoo for best solutions, but I really hope one day there are ways to resolve the network issue.

Anyhow, once you had done the cleaning. Backup your data and reformat it to prevent future infections. I will keep this post update if I could find a solution.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
