As you can guess, I'm hamish1 () webhosting net nz
This email contained no text, only an attachment called legs.zip, which
Norton (fully updated to its' latest version and data files) did not
detect any viruses in.
Within the legs.zip file there is a file called ds-rwe.exe - this again
was not detected as a virus.
My girlfriend thought she would be smart and ran ds-rwe.exe, which gave
me a memory overflow message for explorer.exe immidiately.
Does anyone have any idea of what this might be, and also if it is a
virus that has already been identified? If not, I am willing to pass it
through to someone to take a look at in its' zip format.
Otherwise if the effects cannot be reversed, I am afraid I will have to
reformat this machine *sigh* NOT AGAIN :(
Have a great day everyone and thanks in advance for your help.
Kindest of regards,
