[SEAOC] PKZIP Trojan Horse

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Do not assume that a good virus checker will always save the day!!!
Try this:
  1. Change the name of format.com to game.com
  2. include instructions with the file that "this is a self extracting file.  Just
     tell it where you want it to expand, i.e. game.com c:"
  3. Follow the instructions.  The name of the game is rebuild your hard  
       drive. 
If you run a virus checker on this program, it won't say anything!  Of
course not!  It is regular program that does what it is supposed to do, but
has been pawned off as something else -- a Trojan Horse.

James Lord, S.E.
