Hi,

I have a CD with about 1000 photos loaded onto it. The pictures were taken by a Nikon Digital Camera and burned to the cd.

We found 2 entries that has the I-Worm/Wukill.B virus on it. Here are the files:

D:\No 1226 - 1426\101NIKON.exe
D:\No 1226 - 1426\1226 - 1426.exe

Can the computer be infected with these files when you copy the photos to the PC? :) We did that, and we have no viruses, but the CD still does.

I won't post a HJT log, since my computer is not infected, but my cd is.

Thanks,

FKG :tazz:

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. been very busy.

Welcome to Geeks To Go

I am The_Big_G. I am in training right now and all my posts must be approved by my instructors as to prevent from posting bad instructions

with that said............

Not as long as those two files are not downloaded to the hard drive or ran from the cd. I would suggest posting a hijackthis log here just to be on the safe side. other wise here is some things that may help in the future

The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  • Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Weather Watcher - Free taskbar weather program that is free, malware free, and resource light.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein
