got a virus
my kaspersky keeps popping up "screeching" and saying some file is infected. then pops up saying it was deleted successfully. then does it again every couple minutes.
Got it from an email attachment from a guy that was selling something and obviously a scam.
From what I've read things say it's a keystroke logging virus that keeps track of which sites I visit and passwords and such I put in. And I can't figure out how to get rid of it permanently. so any help would be appreciated.
"This Trojan program is written in order to steal confidential data. It collects login names and passwords in a dedicated log file, and then sends this file to the remote malicious user.
The Trojan itself is a Windows PE EXE file approximately 45KB in size. It is not packed in any way.
When installing, the Trojan copies itself to the Windows system directory as "msserv.exe":
It then registers this file in the system registry, ensuring that the Trojan file will be launched each time Windows is rebooted on the infected machine:
"msserv" = "%System%\msserv.exe"
The Trojan also creates a file called "servms.dll" in the Windows system directory:
The Trojan tracks which Internet sites are visited, and also logs keystrokes; this information will be saved in servms.dll.
servms.dll will then be sent to the remote malicious user by email."
