More malware

Another virus is making the rounds, this time it is the file recovery virus. A friend came to me for help, the same one here.

This is quite a particular nasty piece of malware. It took me 2-3 hours to completely erase it. While carrying out the removal from his PC, one of my own PCs got infected! Guess what I was doing just before I got hit? I went to Andrew's Malaysian Chess Blogs site (he informed me he had removed the malware). From there I went to Samsudin's site and Gilocatur's site. Pretty sure I got the virus from one of these three blogs.

So right now I am doing the malware removal on my own machine. Two machines in one night :)

Readers be careful now, you do not want this on your machine  :)
