It is one of the most powerful Trojan /virus I have ever seen… While I was working, one of my friends PMd me and gave me a link [Please don’t click this link] If your computer is infected with this virus ” It will send the url to all of your friend list in yahoo messenger using your ID . So with in few hours many of your friends will get infected with it.

I don’t know what’s the actual target of the idiot who created it. May be to advertise his site or to steal very imp data from your computer. I resolved the problem manually from 2 infected PC’s. Just go through the below steps carefully.

What are those links ?: or other (Do not open this url in your browser).

3: Files that are gonna be installed by this virus are svhost.exe , svhost32.exe , can find these files in windows/ & temp/ directories.

4: It will sends the secured & protected information to attacker
