limewire.exe gave meh this.

Recommended Posts

so, u may or may not use LimeWire.. I used to..

If you do use it, you are familiar with a new version coming out, and auto downloading into your limewire library.

Usually, I've had no problem with this... but the downside is, your downloading off of other users.. not directly from the site.

anyhow...

I've been cleaning up this mess for a while.

here is how I got infected...

I trusted the limewire update,

I exec'd it,

it did an "install wizard" that didn't look authentic, I exited it...

I went to regedit to try and see if it installed anything new there.

When I exec'd regedit, a dos box came up and said

.....connecting to regeditbot.com... connecting... 5....4....3... I unplug ethernet cable.

I was like wtf hell i aint seen nothing like this since i got nuked over Counter Strike beta back in 1999.

I immediately downloaded AVG free, Adaware, and Spybot S&D, and using them all in conjunction seems to have fixed my problem.

considering it's  a worm, I half expect to find it again, considering I was chasing it from directory to directory to directory to directory to directory last night.

google VB.CC, I haven't yet, I don't wanna know! LOL!!!!

just be careful, if you're a limewire user, update limewire via the site, not the installers that auto download to u into your library, and try not to share the file if it DOES go into your library.

Trojan

Description: A seemingly legitimate computer program that has been intentionally designed to disrupt and damage computer activity. Trojans are sometimes used in conjunction with viruses. A backdoor Trojan is a program that allows other computer users to gain access to your computer across the internet.

considering I was fine BEFORE I exec'd this crap...

that would be the only way you could get it i would assume,

search your pc for VB.C , if it finds returns u screwed.

I use an older version of limewire and it works great. Many people on the limewire forum suggest not upgrading to newer versions if you are happy with the one you have. There are hundreds of virus on limewire put there by the record companies(and others) so you need to be extremely careful and Knowlegable about P2P before you start downloading everything you see.

If you need help or information their forum @www.gnutellaforums.com is very helpful                    (lots of trojan/virus information)

I should be really worried if i were you by using Norton'  Norton finds 1 virus out of 4 in your computer'

I HAVE A GOOD FEELING THIS THREAD IS GOING TO BE LOCKED SOON'

The legality of P2P isnt whats in question here,

and as far as randomly downloading everything I see, not happening, i've been using p2p of one kind or another for many many years. Limewire will auto download any new updates, it downloads just like any other file. i've done this many times, using the download to upgrade. IT JUST so happened that this ONE time that I did, I ended up with a worm.

So, im not a nub,

and why change the thread topic like that.

The thread won't be locked, because no one is discussing downloading pirated software, and discussing ip swapping to get each others files.

I just gave a fair warning about the update that hit limewire recently, apparently someone modified their copy, to infect others with it, considering It downloads from multiple hosts at once, and peices the bits together.

wow.

lame.

I have been a limewire user for awhile now.....Never really had ne major problems with it.  One thing u need to watch for is the wealth of viruses available to download.i for one have noticed this because i

have a virus guard and firewall on while using limewire...Many files are viruses in disguise....for instance if u see a file labeled windows xp and is only 1mb this obviously not windows xp and u need to move on.  I am really suprised on the amount of files that r viruses in diguise..

My advice:have a descent firewall and virus guard running and watch out for abvious viruses in diguise

I'm assuming your talking about other people. and not advising ME to use these utilities, because I do, and I'm trying to get the point across, that if your a lime wire user, you know about the update auto downloading into your library... now.. I've explained this 11 times i think.

as far as im concerned, this thread went way south, and the same info is being repeated, over, and over and over again.

in 9 years of using p2p, this is my first virus...

I'm not the one needing a lesson in this, I just wanted to warn people that the

LIMEWIRE UPDATER, not some random file, gave me the virus,

i know what and what not to download.

now i wish i would have never started this thread..

p2p is NOT a bad thing, people are.
