Wipeout! New Trojan Can Obliterate Your Hard Drive

Postby TeMerc » Tue Jun 09, 2009 10:47 am

The Russian anti-virus vendor Doctor Web has issued a warning about a new Trojan that can, potentially, delete every single file and folder on a compromised computer.

The new Trojan has an appropriate name - Trojan.KillFiles.904 and has been confirmed in the wild since the beginning of this month.

If you are unfortunate enough to be infected with Trojan.KillFiles.904 then all of your files and data are at serious risk.

The Trojan will search all drives on your system, both internal and external, and including small devices such as USB sticks and flash memory cards.

Trojan.KillFiles.904 will search for drives in reverse logical order, i.e. it will look for drive Z: first and A: last.

Whenever it finds a drive it will attempt to remove all files and folders contained on it, whether they are visible or hidden.
