Net-Integration is not sending any spam but only appears to be doing so. The net-integration domain account account was disabled for the majority of the day while the source of the spamming was sought. The ISP (http://pisem.net) that is hosting malware was notified several hours ago and they have not done anything about it so far.
Let it be clarified that Net-Integration does not appear to have been hacked which seems to be a widespread comment. Logs are being reviewed to determine if source can be identified and we will keep all posted.
...and a fix for the malware contained in the email:
A batch file has been put together by Atribune ( http://www.atribune.org ) for anyone needing to cleanup the malware from email being sent out. Please note that if you did not open or download attachment you were not infected and it is not necessary to clean.
Download the attached zip file to local folder, unzip it and save it to a location you can remember. Reboot in safe mode and run the fixit.bat file by double clicking or using command prompt.
Reboot to normal mode. Also note it may be necessary to reinstall any of the following: Far, Total Commander, Windows Commander, ICQ, The Bat, Trillian, Miranda.
We thank Atribune very much for his efforts. Please be sure to give thanks as well.
