- Trojan Horse
JS.Xiro.Trojan is a short JScript Trojan. It was publicly posted to a virus source code newsgroup.
This script contains instructions to modify the registry and to rename the Internet Explorer browser title bar to "Orixuss."
The registry modification is an instruction that tells Windows to exit or shut down; it runs at Windows startup. The only way to bypass this would be to start Windows in Safe mode.
