Win32.Massaker

You would never leave your door open at all times. Why would you want the same thing for your computer?  Dangerous program, Win32.Massaker does precisely that.

This parasite affects the following programs: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

It will enter as a Trojan through deceptive and secret means and will then leave a “backdoor”, specifically port 7119, open for other malware to enter.  This pest is written in Microsoft Visual Basic (VB) programming language and is a Windows PE EXE file.  In addition to leaving you vulnerable, it will terminate the processes of several security applications making it very difficult to remove.

Manual removal can be achieved but not without difficulty.  Because of the resilient nature of this pest, it is not recommended to manually remove.  However, if you are experienced, you can remove Win32.Massaker by using Task Manager to kill all the running processes and then later deleting all the remaining files.

    I got Win32.Massaker in my computer, so I ran SpyZooka. It took me about 30 minutes scanning my laptop. After that I got a clean machine. Great job!
