Trojan Virus

Created: 09 Nov 2009 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 1 comment

 I have one machine on the network that keeps getting detections fro Trojan Horse Viral. (risk type) it keeps finding them in the users lcoalsettings/temp directory, or it creates them their? There seems to be no other information regarding htis virus. As to what Trojan it is or any other info. I do full scans and then delete everythign in the temp directory but it seems to come back next time i do another full scan. (I have turned of system restore and done scans). Is there anyway to find out specifically what Trojan this is or suggestion for removing it?

Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition, Risk Type - Trojan Horse Viral. c:\Documents and Settings\myuser\Local Settings\Temp\DWHA85A.tmp

You should try downloading the Rapid Release definition. http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response...

Detection was modified for Trojan horse - http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response...

If that fails, then this could be a new variant of an existing Trojan. You should submit the suspected file to Security Response for analysis ASAP.

See the submission page for detailed instructions - http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response...
