Return of AVG's LinkScanner

When AVG Technologies slurped up Exploit Prevention Labs, it rolled the standalone LinkScanner security app into its popular antivirus offerings. While the newfound ability to rate search results and live Web pages for safety ratings lent AVG products some extra relevancy and clout, not everyone wants to download a full-blown security app just to get a warning or go-ahead to search a Web site.

Thankfully, AVG Technologies has seen the error of its bundling-only ways, and has rereleased LinkScanner as a free, standalone add-on for Firefox or Internet Explorer once again. This is particularly sanguine news for those who noted performance bungles when using rival software like McAfee SiteAdvisor (for Firefox and IE).

Those well-versed in the LinkScanner of yore won't see too many changes in the new LinkScanner 8.5. The usual red, yellow, and green flags emerge on Google and Yahoo search results, and on the Web page itself, to tip you off if the page in question might contain harmful or seedy elements.

We're glad to see LinkScanner back on its own, and after you read up on this handy security scout, you might be, too.

Virus: Win32:Banker [Trojan Horse]

Win32:Banker is a family of Trojans capable of monitoring user activity and stealing private information. Win32:Banker monitors user’s internet access. If certain websites (banking, payment system) are visited, Win32:Banker will log user’s activity. Win32:Banker will than send all the stolen details to the attacker.


Win32:Banker is a family of Trojans capable of stealing private information such as account numbers, passwords and banking credentials. Many variants can wait in the background and monitor user's internet activity. A logging procedure starts when a certain website is accessed, or if the address of an accessed website contains certain words. Many variants may supplement legitimate banking or payment system websites to get user details.

After getting the user details, Win32:Banker will send all the information to the attacker. Data can be sent to the attacker’s e-mail, can be uploaded to the attacker’s FTP server or can be submitted to the attacker’s website.

Win32:Banker may be downloaded by a user or can be received via email, but usually it is downloaded by other Trojan-Downloaders. When Win32:Banker is launched, it may copy itself to various folders such as %WINDOWS% or %SYSTEM%. Many variants set themselves to run each time Windows starts by creating the corresponding registry entries.

Most known variants target the users of Brazilian banks. These variants may be distributed in executables with names containing the word "cartao" ("card" in English).

If a user’s computer is infected with Win32:Banker, it is recommended to change the logging details of user’s bank account.

FREE ANTI VIRUS: Ansav +EA 2.0.26 Beta / 1.9.3

This antivirus helps you to identify, thwart and eliminate computer viruses and other malicious software.

Ansav is a free antivirus utility designed to identify, thwart and eliminate computer viruses and other malicious software (malware)

ANSAV, abbreviation from An's AntiVirus, is an application that runs on Windows XP and was made especially to handle various mallware like virus

, Trojan and Spyware.

This is not a commercial Antivirus, ANSAV was only designed as portable software and can be undertaken without needing the installation, because ANSA V is not resident and only treats.

At this time ANSAV could have detected various newest local virus (Indonesia Viruses) and several foreign viruses that often circulated in Indonesia, but ANSAV cannot be relied on as personal Antivirus because there are quite a few viruses that could be detected by other Antivirus softwares and were not detected by ANSAV. This was caused by the limitations of the Antivirus database (the virus definition signature)

ANSAV was developed for Indonesian purpose (local support only) although it can detect several foreign viruses, therefore your role is to always send the sample of the newest virus that still could not be detected by ANSAV, so that ANSAV would become your main weapon to eradicate the virus, especially the local virus.

Ansav contains the definitions of more than 776 viruses.

a-squared Anti-Malware - Effective Malware Protection


A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without the permission or knowledge of the owner. The term "virus" is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, adware, and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A true virus can only spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code) when its host is taken to the target computer; for instance because a user sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive. Viruses can increase their chances of spreading to other computers by infecting files on a network file system or a file system that is accessed by another computer.[1][2]

The term "computer virus" is sometimes used as a catch-all phrase to include all types of malware. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, most rootkits, spyware, dishonest adware, crimeware, and other malicious and unwanted software), including true viruses. Viruses are sometimes confused with computer worms and Trojan horses, which are technically different. A worm can exploit security vulnerabilities to spread itself to other computers without needing to be transferred as part of a host, and a Trojan horse is a program that appears harmless but has a hidden agenda. Worms and Trojans, like viruses, may cause harm to either a computer system's hosted data, functional performance, or networking throughput, when they are executed. Some viruses and other malware have symptoms noticeable to the computer user, but many are surreptitious.

Most personal computers are now connected to the Internet and to local area networks, facilitating the spread of malicious code. Today's viruses may also take advantage of network services such as the World Wide Web, e-mail, Instant Messaging, and file sharing systems to spread.

Conficker worm might originate in China

Updated at 9:13 p.m. PDT with information provided by BKIS stating that its free version of BKAV antivirus software can remove the worm from any infected computer.

There's been a lot of fuss about the Conficker worm. And here's the a $250,000 question: what is the origin of the virus?

$250,000 is the amount of money Microsoft is putting up as a reward for any information leading to an arrest related to the case. Folks at BKIS, a Vietnamese security firm that makes the BKAV antivirus software, announced Monday that they found clues that the virus may have originated in China. Previously, there were rumors that it might have been from Russia or Europe.

The firm's conclusion is based on its analysis of the virus' coding. It found that Conficker's code is closely related to that of the notorious Nimda, a virus that wreaked havoc on the Net and e-mail in 2001. At that time, BKIS determined that Nimda was made in China, based on the firm's own data.

It's important to note that the origin of Nimda was never verified. Though Nimda contained text indicating that it may have originated from China, that is in no way hard evidence.

Even if this finding by BKIS is credible, it's hardly good news, as it does little to help the authorities lay their hands on whomever is responsible for creating the virus. What it does is narrow in on where to block the return of the virus.

VIRUS: Win32:Confi (Confiker, Downup, Downadup and Kido)

Win32:Confi is a mass spreading worm


Type : Worm
Aliases : W32/Downadup, Net-Worm, Win32.Kodo, W32/Confoker
Platform : Windows
Known locations : %WINDIR%\system32, recycle bin


Win32:Confi exploits a security hole in Windows ( ) to propagate itself over networks. After infecting a machine, Confi creates a service with a randomly generated name and tries to infect other computers in the same subnet. It also drops itself into any removable media (USB sticks) plugged into the infected machine. When the attempt to exploit neighbouring computers fails, the worm runs a brute-force attack against weak passwords. Filesystem operations above the Win32:Confi files are not accessible for common users (not even for administrators), because the worm removes the rights and ownership from its files.


Manually download the corresponding patch from MS (Confi blocks access to some anti-malware sites). Update avast! VPS to the latest version. Unplug the LAN cable. Schedule the boot time scan and move all Win32:Confi files to the virus chest. After rebooting, install the MS patch. Reconnect the LAN cable and everything should be fine.
