    I Got Some Weird Ass Virus

    So I decided to get the best anti virus in california (Worldwide - CA - thats the site i got it at) and so far, it claims i have 89 infected files with the virus named "WIN32/pinfi.A"



    i never heard of this virus, so i looked it up and got this info, the best info i could get on the virus

    what does this mean, i still don't understand...

    it infects any .exe or .scr files, and then can be spread to anyone in your network, and also to your other harddrives, and it changes its use i guess (polymorphic...)

    Sounds fun... It just means that if you connect other hard drives to your computer, they can spread to those hard drives, and the virus can spread onto other computer through your network. This could be difficult to get rid of, and if CA won't get rid of it, I would suggest getting NOD32, Kaspersky, or something similar to get rid of it...

    NOD32 ... HA, it didnt detect this, and CA did clean it for me, but i was just wondering what it does, like if it deletes stuff, or lets people view my hard drive...
