Got a virus but AV scanner doesn't find it
| 10:51 am on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)|
When my computer starts a program named installer loads and then Microsoft Outlook loads and messages start appearing about contacts.
The installer program seems to be bndt.exe located in windows/system folder. There is also another program named No call list.exe in the same folder.
I have deleted the entries for bndt.exe in the registry and deleted both the .exe files but when I restart the programs come back.
Norton does not find any viruses, but I found a virus web site which mentioned the above .exe files but it was in Korean so wasn't much use.
Can anyone help. Thanks in advance

It may be this: "W32.NoCall" apparently written by this guy:
A quote from the above page:
|I just finished writing my first w32 worm NoCall, get the binary in the source code section. Its nothing special but I'm proud of it anyway |
Does this boasting mean that you can call the police and get this guy arrested?

Thanks. Yeah thats what it was. Kaspersky Antivirus got rid of it, surprised Norton doesn't have it listed.
The author has that site hosted by a site that has loads of virus authors. Can't believe that is allowed. The site even has a better google PR than mine!
