Klez Virus Alert & Useful Tools!

Recommended Posts

Dear Users,
It is good you constantly update your antivirus data file with your latest anti-virus software.
It will help to stamp out virus such as this new stealth virus making virus seemly appearing to come from uninfected e-mail address.
The following details is extracted courtesy from Tend Micro Weekly Virus Report dated April 26, 2002.

WORM_KLEZ.H continues to hold steady in the #1 position in Trend Micro's World Virus Tracking Center http://wtc.trendmicro.com/wtc/. At the time of this writing, more than 134,000 computers worldwide have been infected with WORM_KLEZ.H. Europe, Asia, and North America have been hardest hit.
This destructive, memory-resident variant of the WORM_KLEZ.A mass-mailing worm uses SMTP
to propagate via email. The subject line of the email it arrives with is randomly selected from a long list of possible choices. This worm can change or spoof the original email address in the FROM:
field. It obtains email addresses (that it places in the FROM: field) from the infected user's address book. This causes a non-infected user to appear as the person who has sent this worm's malicious email, and hides the real address of the sender of the infected email.
Upon execution, this worm decodes its data in memory. It then copies itself to a WINK*.EXE file in the Windows System directory. The copy has a hidden attribute and the * is a random number of random characters. It also infects .EXE files.
The worm drops a randomly named file in the ProgramFilesDir (usually C:\Program Files).
Approximately 10KB in size, this program can infect files in network-shared folders and disable system file protection. Trend Micro detects this program as PE_ELKERN.D.
The worm also disables the running processes, and occasionally deletes the executable files, of programs associated with several popular antivirus products.
On Windows 98/95 systems, the worm registers itself as a service process to hide itself from the taskbar. On Windows 2000 systems, the worm creates a system service and registers it as a service control dispatcher. This worm does not execute its payload on systems running Windows
NT 4.0 and earlier versions, although infection of machines with this operating system is possible if the machine has shared folders. The dropped virus, PE_ELKERN.D, infects files in shared drives.
When this happens, a full infection of the system may result, since PE_ELKERN.D executes on any Windows platform.
If you would like to scan your computer for WORM_KLEZ.H or thousands of other worms, viruses, Trojans and malicious code, visit HouseCall, Trend Micro's free online virus scanner at:
WORM_KLEZ.H is detected and cleaned by Trend Micro pattern file #265 and above.

Please ignore. As this is history. 
18 years ago is a long time in the internet.

Take this as simply of snapshot frozen in the past.
