Trojan Horse WARNING (People of Walmart)

Yesterday, I read this thread:

Open Carry - People of Walmart

So I went to the People of Walmart website and was getting a pretty good chuckle. Unfortunatly, the last laugh was on me. Apparently the site is uploading a rather nasty virus going by several names.

I got the XP Guardian 2010 varient. It disables your current AV protection, installs itself and shuts down web access. The downside for me is that it's my work computer. They don't have a policy against surfing on downtime, so I'm not in trouble. However, the techguy isn't thrilled as this is the 4th infection this week alone. (not for me)

The only recourse is full rewrite of the HD.

Be very, very careful surfing that site. Google people of walmart/ browser hijack and I'm apparently not the only one.

Its a really, really bad virus. Be careful.

I don't think that the OP is/was aware, and I'm not calling him 'on the carpet', I'm just letting others know to be careful.

Thumbs up

CM,
Thanks for the heads up! I feel for your troubles... these things are always a time-consuming hassle.

Thanks for the the heads up.
Perhaps a good antivirus software program would be in order.
Mine catches stuff like that all the time..
If you already have one, it isn't apparently doing the job...

Wow! I've been there often, and haven't seem to catch it. Thanks for the heads up. Did you click on any links or anything?

It doesn't upload it automatically you would have had to have click on install yourself.

Those attacks and getting more and more common and are not necessarily the work of 'bad browsing.'

We have had a few here at work this week too, but none have needed a clean install.

This is why I have a linux (Ubuntu) machine at home... It's like having a rain coat on in the rain.

Actually, Trend Micro, Symantic, Norton and Forefront don't catch it.
Its a really nasty bugger.

I've added malwarebytes as it's one of the few that can catch it and kill it.

I'm pretty good with computers. I build my own machines, and try and stay on top of this sort of stuff. It didn't give me any 'options' to install. All of the sudden my anti-virus in the lower right corner was gone. It installed itself, disabled all .exe's and hijacked my browser. It also changed a bunch of entries in the registry.

Seriously, it's a bad one.

Nope. I was just browsing the idiots of walmart. And BAM machine was toast. My tech guy told me that it's one of the 'best' virus' he's ever seen. It's in two pieces. The executable, and another part. If you disable one piece, it redoes it from the other piece.

That's what I was thinking. With NoScript in FF, that's a good hint to really consider what you're allowing.
