MSN Messenger Virus BR2002

At 1:40 PM, Beijing time (+8), I received a message from

Hey!! Could you please check out this program for me? I made it myself and want people to test it. Its a readme with the program that explains what it does! http://home.no.net/downl0ad/BR2002.exe <-- There you can download it! give me advices on what to upgrade please!!

Do not click on the link!

If you click and open the EXE, you will send a message to each contact in your contact list, asking them to click it as you did. It is very dangerous. I don’t know what the EXE will do on your disk.

I will keep an eye on this issue.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I found spam and virus have been two popluar topics in blogger world. Maybe it araises more anger than anything else. Regarding this virus, the good news is, http://home.no.net is down now and this helps to slow down the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, I found eTrust anti-virus can detect the virus and mark it as Fleming.A.Worm.

    Regarding your quesiton about language this blog is using, it is an FAQ. I enjoy sharing ideas and though with people anywhere in this world. Language is only the tool. We are reading internationally, we are talking about events that happens internationally – like this virus, I need to be able to read and UNDERSTOOD by other people. I have been referenced to Norwaign blogs but I cannot read – what a feeling that I can not read while I really interested in the idea behind the Norwaign characters?

    By default, MovableType does not support Chinese. The comment system support all languages since it stores the Chinese characters using Unicode code encoder – &xxxxx;

    For blog entries, it seems MovableType can support Chinese character in its body, but not title. It will encode the title for the second time based on the garbage codes so make it totally unreadable.

    The problem can be easily fixed using the steps outlined below:

    http://www.movabletype.org/cgi-bin/ikonboard/ikonboard.cgi?s=3dae672846dbffff;act=ST;f=14;t=8744;hl=charset

    I didn’t give it a try yet, but it should work.

    It is a nice personal blog site, esp. given that I was graduated from SJTU at the same year, :)

    It seems life in China could be splendid as well, after hard working and strong self-discipline. It is good that one can enjoy his work, :)

    As for the above-mentioned virus, it could be programmed easily, as there are already documents and sample programs to manipulate MSN Messenger objects, even from Windows Host Scripts, I think.

    Have a nice day!

    regards,

    Wow. It is great that you also lived and studied at SJTU. Very nice to meet you here.

    China is becoming better, and Shanghai is even better during the recent years. It is also good.

    Yes. It is very easy to build a script to control the messenger. It is easy but now it seems dangerous. I believe the reason why MSN Messenger team exposes this interface is because of the Microsoft tradition – to build a platform to make the developers’ work easier instead of creating an application. This has been clearly demostrated during the IE vs Navigator war.

    There is no Fun Buddy virus that I am aware of. However there is a Enduser Licence Agreement for those using the Fun Buddy Icons to message their friends with. One paragraph of this licence states:

    “Unfortunately, that means that your friends must have the Fun Buddy Icons software in order to see your smileys.

    To facilitate this, we periodically include a link to the Fun Buddy Icons download page when you send messages to

    people who have not yet downloaded Fun Buddy Icons.”

    You can read more about that here:

    Hi,

    I have that Buddy Virus as well..Like when im chatting to somebody on MSN, that pops up and i dont even see it. I guess it asks them to take a look at something.

    But recently, I can only talk to limited people..and if I stay on MSN too long my comp starts going wild and then somehow..Something sends itself to all my contacts that are online. It like opens a file and then sends to each and everyone one. But most of them decline it I think. Then after that, I can’t talk to anyone in an open window.

    Last night, I had this message pop up on NOTEPAD and it said something about a LARISSA and being a noob, and something about S-K-Y-D-E-V-I-L.

    I have no idea who Larissa is OR Skydevil. Please give me s0me advice if you can help, this is driving me nuts.

    thanks

  22. Nick

    The virus is called Win32.HLLW.Skydevil, it shuts down a most known anti viruses and spyware programs and Ctrl-Alt-Del is disabled. It also shuts down system restore, which is in the procedure which Symantec have said to remove the virus! so anyone got any bright idea im all out. *ps when i say shuts down i mean it closes the program instanly as you open it*

  26. AJ

    Hey Harry…

    Umm… Im Really Sorry Too Say This… But If You Have Tried Virus Scanners And Fix Problem Editors Then I Think You Will Have To Pay For A Speicalist Computer Programer To Come Fix It Up… What They Do Is Pull Your Computer Apart And Reconnect It Or Something So That The Virus Is Erased From The Computer Memory… You Mite Find You Lose All Your Stuff Saved So You Mite Wanna Save Everything On A Floppy Or CD… If Possible…

    I Also Advise You Go To A Computer Suppier That You Know Well… Otherwise They May Or May Not Put Even More Viruses In And Make You Pay Saying That They DID Fix It… When Honestly They Didnt…

    I Hope I Have Helped You In Some Way…

    If Anyone With More Knowledge Knows Anything Better Too Do… Please Say So… This Has Also Happened To Me Before… And I Find It Very Irritating… If You Have Something To Share… Than Do So… Its Not Fair To Others With The Problem…

    Best Wishes…

    Hope All Goes Well For You And Your Computer…

    Sincerly…

    any1 know 2 get rid?

  29. Jakenster

    You guys are all n00bs. Seriously. All you need to do is run AVG, and Norton, and see what they find. If nothing, it’s just spyware. You can get rid of it with Spybot or Ad-Aware. If it’s not that either, send Symantec.com the link, and they’ll make something for it. If they get enough requests, that is.

  30. dazzer

  45. Jordan Scheltgen

    Hey

    I have the Larissa virus, fuckin n00b all that shit. I have attempted to remove the program several times. I had it before then a computer programmer wiped our computer and it was fine with msn 7.0. As soon as I downloaded msn 7.5 the problem started re-occuring when I try to log on I get the error code 80048883, and when I goto troubleshoot it says there is a problem with the key-ports. If anyone knows an approach to removing this virus please help. The links above I couldnt get to because it woudl shut down explorer everytime I clicked them.

    Thanks,

    Jordan

  46. jennie

    can someone please help me?! i downloaded msn 7.5, and an error occured everytime I tried to log in… 80048883… I’m not good at computers, so if someone could help me, I would be very grateful =)

  47. Si

    Im gettin that error n apparently my firewall is stoppin me from loggin on the problem is i don’t even have a firewall =P n when i go to troubleshoot everything appears fine o.O this is s**t

  48. james

    dude same here, its been like like for 4-5 months now, i used to have error message 8????820 and now ive got this 80048883. it stops on default gateway and idunno wot to do. HELP!!!

  49. charlotte

    ARGH!!! This error code has started up for me today too – my boyfriend thinks I’M the one who’s broken the comp!!! Could someone please please help!!!!

  50. Femke

    Same here, my sister got a pop-up at msn saying she could download a new version of msn, so she did. Now the bloody thing won’t connect anymore. Which is kind of strange given the fact that we already had msn 7.5 running on our computer, and it was doing fine before she downloaded this update.

  51. Silvia

    Same crap here… downloaded new version of msn and now can’t connect…unless I do a restore point and use the older version!! Error 80048883

  52. John

    Yeah, this just happened to me. I thought maybe it was something with the download, so I tried it again but the same crap is happening.

    Hope someone figures this out.

  53. John

    I just saved myself the trouble and used system restore back to yesterday. Everything’s fine now. Certainly won’t make that mistake again.

  54. Thomas

    I have the same problems. Mine started when my Webcam wouldn’t work with YAHOO MSG. Now it won’t sign in. THen I downloaded the new MSN and it does the same thing as yall except it says something about a firewall. My XP firewall is turned off and I don’t have NORTON anymore. Also I can’t restore since for some reason it was turned off! HELP!

  55. Rose

    Exactly same thing here. I downloaded the ” new msn ” which is 7.5 .. but i already have 7.5 anyways. So i could of did what John did by restoring it. But stupid me I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it and the same thing happend again. And it says i need to do something with my firewall but i dont even have a firewall? I REALLY WANT MY MSN BACK !! Please help.

  56. Mike

    Install msn 7.0 instead….

    I upgraded my 7.5 and the same problem like yours accured.

    I reinstalled it without any luck, but I had the MSN 7.0 install file.

    Now I’ve installed it and it works. So until Live messenger will come, maybe you should use 7.0 instead.

    I hope I could help…

    /Mike

  57. Amber

    I’m having the same problems. I tried system restore but for some reason it won’t restore. Does anyone know what I can do to make MSN work? (I can’t install an older version because I don’t have the install files.)

  58. Silvia

    My msn messenger is inow up and running, did not do anything (was going to do system restore) but I successfully signed in…i did contact MSN a couple of days ago and received their reply today…maybe they did something…don’t know. If you still have problems I can forward the message they sent me on how to fix the problem (it’s very long so I don’t want to post it here). chivis36@hotmail.com

  59. Andy

    I have had this problem now too!! i downloaded the update for 7.5 this morning, well it said it was a newer versian and i updated and now its giving me the 80048883 error message etc and i cant get it off!! :-@ im really upset about it because i need to speak to friends to arrange something on msn and i cant get on :-(

  60. LB

    i have messenger 7.5, and when i try and sign in i cnt so it goes to troubleshooter and when checking my system it stops on default gateway. how can i stop this or what shall i do to change my default gateway so that i can sign in?

  61. Avni

    HELP!! The same thing has happened to me i downloaded the ‘new’ version and now i get the code 80048883 and i cannot log in at all – i cant restore the setting because i have uninstalled and restalled MSN twice. Any ideas how to fix it ?

  62. Yoshi

    2006 Jan 21. In Japan, same problem occured. after downloaded laterst version of MSN, I can not login to messenger. I have other PCs, I can go thru with them ( Latest MSN installed ), Ido not know why…. In troubled PC, I also can not login to SKYPE, too

  63. Avni

    Rose – you can download messenger 7.0 from the windows download centre. Go to google and type in windows download centre and then on the right hand side it says somehing about families click MSN and then the MSN messenger tab and form there you can downoad it. Hope this helps

  64. Fabiola

    That’s what i’m gonna do, i will download the MSN 7.0 then, but the weirdest of things is that the error 80048883 only happens in my session but not in my husband’s session, really weird.

    No matter how many times i unistall it and re install it it will give me the same error, and when i’m trying to type in my email adrees it gets stuck and minutes later it will let me write another part of the email..it takes so looong and then the error pops up. And it tells me that i am NOT connected to net passport wich is not true.

    So MSN 7.0 here it comes!!

  65. Magali

    Oh! I’m so happy to find people with the same session error. Maybe MSN 7.5 dosn’t like women because it can’t work in my session but doesn’t have trouble in my husband’s session too!!!!

    I will look for MSN 7.0 too now…

  66. sarah

    ok i really dont know what to do, ive downloaded msn messenger 7.5 and it wont let me sign in. troubleshoot keeps comming up with the code 8004883. i havent got a clue what this means if anyone does know please help i feel like ive tried everything to fix it.

  67. Fabiola

    Yes!! i switched back to MSN 7.0 and everything works perfectly!

    I’m soooo happy now, it means a lot since it became an important part of my job.

  68. Simon

    My msn messenger doesnt seem to let me sign in anymore. Every time i sign in it automatically closes and the icon on the bottom right of my screen is still there, but when i mouse over it disappears. I’d like to know how to fix this problem, and why its like that.

  71. misty chen

    thanks for your flight info from the shuttle from Pudong to Hongxiao.

    i’m flying in from LAX from China Eastern arriving at 6:30 pm and trying to make it to Wuhan the same day.

    Seems like the last flight is a 8:20 flight from China Southern which the travel agent said is too risky.

    My question is: how long does the shuttle take around that time?

    say i board the shuttle at around 7pm…i believe it takes about 45 mins-an hour?

    i’m just wondering if it’s worth risking to try to catch it.

    also, is there any other cities near Wuhan that any shanghai airlines might fly to that evening so i can take the bus? i know that’s not likely since Wuhan is probably the only major city in that region with an airport.

  72. steffie

  88. neosonic2k

    Well, that’s bad. These are usually programs that run at startup and are hidden. They will not show on the Programs-> startup menu, since the instructions are usually on the registry. These programs are the ones who send those messages. To get rid of them, you must search the internet for any home-made removal tools, or, if you’re daring, run regedit and go to the Localmachine->software->microsoft->windows->currentversion->run registry key and search and delete the offensive program. Of course, this HAS to be done under safe mode. Most programs re-add the registry key if they detect that it was deleted, and safe mode does not run any programs, so, that’s the best way to nullify it. Then just search for the file and delete it.

    I am not responsible for any damage done to your computer by following these instructions. Editing the registry is serious stuff and you should only do it after making a restore point.

    Hi there! The following procedures worked for me, when AntiVirus and AntiSpyware software didn’t work.

    Read it before you try it..

    MSN Messenger virus:

    1 – stop and unninstall msn messenger

    2 – press CTRL+ALT+DEL -> stop all ‘unknown’ or ‘weird’ processes. If not sure, just type the name of the process on Google to know if it is a virus, adware or spyware

    3 – Start -> Run -> msconfig -> startup -> uncheck all boxes without any name or description and other ‘weird’ processes. If not sure, check the path of the process and/or search on Google. Take note of the files and folders that you find out that belong to virus, etc. Press OK. This will keep unchecked processes from starting with Windows. Don’t restart.

    4 – donwload and run Eusing Registry Cleaner or other Registry Cleaner software. Delete all issues found.

    5 – restart Windows in Safe-Mode (press F8 – I think..). If still present, delete the files and that you took note of in step 3

    6 – restart Windows normally. A window will appear saying that some changes were made (on step 3). Uncheck the box and press OK

    7- donwload and re-install msn messenger

    ATTENTION:

    – be carefull not to delete any ‘good’ file..if not sure, use Google :)

    – this is what I do to deal with nasty spyware and adware that infect my computer. sometimes it’s more difficult, requiring the download of special tools ,mostly available in antivirus software websites like Panda, Norton, etc..

    Hope this helps ;)

And When my virus is sending people stuff, It won’t let me talk to them and tell them its a virus so I have to sign off and by the time I get back on they have it.

  123. Phill

    Hi, I have a friend who has a virus and what the virus does is it signs them on automaticaly, sends everybody on their buddy list this: “http://www.vvkoxhno.info :D” and it then signs them off, I’m just wondering if anybody can perhaps provide me with the answer as to how to fix it I have a shrewd idea on how to fix it but because I don’t have the virus myself I can’t very well “experiment” with it, all I know is that the link that the person gives out has the virus on the site but I believe it’s been removed off the site as well as the site is random – you click on the link one day then it could be a ringtone then the next day it could be about estate agents for example, but please if anybody knows how to fix this then please tell me how to then you can find me on check9999mate@hotmail.com – thanks in advance

  124. Phill

    Hi, I’ve been able to fix the problem – it was caused by the person giving away their MSN password away at the site – if you have this problem then change the password

  125. Donna

    I downloaded msn messenger but every time I try to open it I get a message that says ‘Microsoft has closed this program.’ And then a small box at the lower right hand corner tells me something about Data Execution Prevention. Help!

  126. Phill

    Hey Donna, try re-installing MSN – it sounds as if a virus\program editted MSN and so Microsoft is blocking it, if this doesen’t solve your problem then got to this site: http://webmessenger.msn.com/ and then add me, my MSN is: check9999mate@hotmail.com

    the site is a MSN webmessenger which is the same as windows live messnger but in a web browser, I hope this fixes your problem

  127. Maria

    I want to do a restore on my computer but, it keeps telling me that there is an Error and all the setting didn’t change. What could be causing this error? I’ve tried many times. The same results every time. I also; followed the directions.

    Help Me please.

    By the way I have Vista.

  128. Phill

    Hi Maria, it sounds as if system restore has decided to stop working for you – this happens to the best of us, about the only way that you can fix this problem is by using the Vista disc that was provided (boot up from the DVD, repair option and then system restore) but the chances are that somthings gone onto your PC and so stopped System restore thus if the restore doesen’t work from the disc then I would recomend to start a fresh – save out what you want to keep, boot up from the disc and then re-install Vista

    Hello all,

    For most of your MSN Problems, I’d suggest doing a ONLINE SCAN which this virus will hopefully not close.

    Also you can try:

    ~If you bought your computer from a company like Dell, The warranty may come into effect with this.

    ~Try a System Repair installation (This will not destroy data)-On Yahoo! Questions by Me!!!–Link: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AmC4UvPEEND3XtwHjVEDm3nty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20080312040916AAqmDpB&show=7#profile-info-jxdvS6YHaa

    — Just look at the “Best Answer” part,The instructions there are the same ones for Windows XP. This wil not work with Windows NT,2000,98 SE, 98,95 etc.

    ~If a System Repair Installation does not work back up valuable data and back it up onto CDs and DVDs then re-install Windows. Formatting your Hard Drive before a Clean re-install of windows would be best.

    If anyone needs more help please Email me at rphchow@hotmail.com

    If this helps it’s no problem, I’m used to computer related issues.

    Hi Sabine, did you by any chance enter in your MSN password on a site which claims that it can check if someone has deleted you – if so change it and your problems will cease, if on the other hand you haven’t then see if you can do a system restore then hopefully that will sort your problem out, it can be located in: Start, All programs, Acessories, System tools and then system restore.

    If you are still having problems then feel free to add me on check9999mate@hotmail.com

    @skye, next time those requests apprear, you just need to tick the ‘block’ checkbox and click the ‘ok’ button, by which those requests will never ever appear again. LOL! I’ve ever done that, and it really works, so just have a try.

    Hey, yesterday i signed in to windows live messenger and it popped up telling me off the newer version so i clicked to download it….once it had downloaded i signed in but all my contacts had gone! It will not let me add anyone saying that they are not using messenger yet. Has this happened to everyone when downloading the newest version or just me? :(
