Here's the tree I saw on the floppy, none of the folders or files could be opened with an editor, and their properties were spurious. ie. massive GB files and dates set decades in the future
Folder: h my roo.t h
Folder: ood guy'.a
file: the MSI.ECr
file: .1" 403.306
file: .1; sv1;. .n
file: 2-05003]. "9
file: ill conf.use
An updated Norton AV scan over it came up clean but I also noticed another file name appear in that scan:
Updated Spybot scan also showed clean
I also have a Linux computer, but I think these files got on the disk whilst I was using the Win box, I'm not certain.
What is it? Where did it come from? How do I stop it happening?
Possibly connected: In another thread here, I'm asking how to stop my .htaccess code from banning MSIECrawler visitors, who currently get a 403 despite nothing in my .htaccess code causing this. I mention it becasue of the file names in the malware: file: the MSI.ECr and file: .1" 403.306
Having a look at those file names again, if you join them all together they could look like 'out-takes' from a text file I used to make my other recent WebmasterWorld post about unblocking MSIECrawler.
'Praps the floppy scrunged the lot together, and printed this on itself. It's currently tossed in a corner where my cat is playing with it.
