From what I gathered there’s been bad mIRC script which been and probably still circulating on mIRC, Virus/Trojan combinations. This Infection is capable of uploading/downloading files between Network Computers and installs itself among them. Uses FTP Protocol for File Transferings, also uses registry to embed itself into the Operating Win2k/XP Systems, with one line change the Infection is capable of working on all Windows Operating Systems Win9x/ME/NT/2K/XP…
Some indications of this particular infection;
1. Generated abnormal Sounds, randomly occurring, makes noises for couple of minutes and then may stop for hours on end before it occurs again.
2. Your computer is unexpectedly slow.
3. Other indications exist but you just don’t become alerted unless you advanced user.
Disconnect from all Client Computers on your Network (Until all has been cleaned) & Temporary pull the plug on your current Internet Connection, and Exit out of all running Applications and go into Windows Task Manager and Terminate all 3rd party processes, try to-do it quickly as possible. Then search the Entire Drives for anything in Reference to hideapp.exe, remote.ini, abcd.jpg and delete all found no matter where it’s located. And quickly empty the “Recycle Bin”.
However, it’s probably for the best before you do the above to Install popular AV, Update, Configure and Scan ALL Local Drives, and then download the newest “The Cleaner” from http://www.moosoft.com
and Install, Update, Configure then Scan ALL Local Drives.
Little tip: You should Scan Drive with “The Cleaner” AT first after Updating/Configuring, because it’s capable of undoing damages in Registry and so forth that these known Infections does. When an AV just deletes/repairs the files and doesn’t care about the damages it had done in the Registry and so forth on users operating Systems.
Afterwards do AV Scan on all Local HDD’s and then cycle back to “The Cleaner” afterwards just to be ensured it’s gone/gone.
It’s also best that once cleaned up from this that you clean your Entire “System Restore” Directory. Start Menu \ Settings\ Control Panel \ System \ Select “System Restore” and access Each "Available drives" “Settings” button, and move the "Slider" from the right to the very left (Min) and click “OK” Button and proceed to-do the very thing with all the other “Available drives” then uncheck to Disable "Turn off System Restore on all drives" and re-boot.
It’s very important you do this with all other Client Computers in your Network BEFORE linking them back up.
If you had already tried without following these procedures you may encounter some problems afterwards that might need to be repaired manually, Others an I should be capable of assisting you on here depending if you can explain in Details the current problems at hand...
