Hello, I am quite unfamiliar with trojans and virus removal-- assistance on this would be greatly appreciated! I have contacted the Kaspersky Virus Labs and have yet to receive a response, so I came here.

Yesterday 5/17/10 my Kaspersky Anti-virus 2009 (Kaspersky Internet Security 8.0.0.454 running on Windows Vista) gave about 8 different responses to a detected trojan. 4 of them were deleted and 4 were postponed and untreated. I am unsure what this means. They all originate from the same two files-- where I rebooted my computer in safe mode, after it disinfected, and deleted the folders which only contained "note/readme" files.

I have attached a screenshot of the reports.

Also I have reports of "detected vulnerabilities", but my computer has been running fine with those up until this point where these trojans have been detected.

From what I can tell my computer is running normally, if not a tad slow on the internet (connection here is shoddy), and I have rescanned my computer, but nothing is detected.

I am still worried-- I have read that malware and trojans can hide in the system reboot(?).

What does this particular trojan-- Trojan.Win32.Buzus.Eaji-- do? Where does is originate from (as in how did it get on my computer)? How can I be sure the trojans have been removed?

I'm sorry, the message stated to persist until my computer was free of problems. I still have yet to receive an answer to my original query-- I've never encountered a trojan and I am worried about the damage it may do to my computer.

I won't bump again, I will continue to wait patiently until I get feedback. Sorry about that.

The trojan you write above is a backdoor trojan which gets distributed through email/greeting card messages.

It is also a worm downloader, which installs a worm on to your computer, so it can successfully spread the same trojan to other computers through the means of USB devices, network transfer, etc.

Lastly, it tweaks certain settings in Windows to reduce its functionality, making it rather difficult to remove.

Does that sum it up?

Yes, thank you-- I think this virus downloaded after I accidentally opened some spam mail. I guess my research was right, it hides in other programs... So is there anyway to go about deleting it or detecting it to make sure it's gone from my computer? wunnepog Newbie Surfer Posts : 7 Joined : 2010-05-19 Operating System : Vista ## Re: Detected Trojan.Win32.Buzus.Eaji-- Please Help!

Ah, the Kaspersky will not download because I already have Kaspersky Internet Protection 8.0, so should I disable Kaspersky and try again?
