New Trojan

There is a new Trojan that is spreading around the internet. McAfee calls it Generic.dx!tyc!5CC782B9137C (I guess they are running out of names for Trojans?)

If you are running Fiddler you'll probably see the following host sites appearing in the log:

  • poetuteywetw.com
  • pphwarofgodsiiewyt.com

poetuteywetw

The best bet is to update your Virus protection software and restart your computer. According to McAfee this Trojan isn't very harmful. However, in a corporate environment it can cause a network slow down, if there are many computers infected.

If you are unable to update your virus program, save your corporate network by adding host entries for poetuteywetw.com and pphwarofgodsiiewyt.com. If you don't know anything about updating your host file, then you shouldn't mess around with it.
