Thread: Warning!

  1. #1
    Liberty Stands Still Filesize 716,798 KB has malicious code that edits the kernel32.dll file in C:\windows\system
    so that Kazaa will no longer work. The damage is done when kazaa reopens the dat file and before it is is completely downloaded it also reinfects the Kernel32.dll each time kazaa accesses the Liberty Stands Still .dat file until it is removed. This is perminent until you delete the .dat and install a new kernel32.dll file. reinstalling Kazaa alone will not help
    Read This topic for more info


    DO NOT DOWNLOAD Liberty Stands Still, Filesize 716,798 KB ever.

    My thoughts exactly

    It's a bit too specific for a general virus and the movie was perfect in avi preview
    also no other software problems have emerged so far

    It's a tricky one for the newbies to suss out and fix.
    this is the main reason I keep pludgging Norton Ghost or Drive Image Etc.

    If you haven't got them installed you have to copy over the kernel32.dll in dos
    as windows uses it and it cannot be overwritten while it's running

    Even if we did have fakes. Because it kills Kazaa stone dead I would have posted it here and in verifieds just to make sure it was spotted

    Is this really possible? How can a .dat file change a .dll? I thought only executables could do that. I know nothing about programming, so maybe someone who does can confirm or deny this. Meanwhile I'm very nervous about using KaZaA now.

    With 2k and XP's Windows File Protection, if kernel32.dll got deleted it will put it back automagically....

    Unless you also modify their backup copy...
