Having Windows slow down to a slug's crawl sucks. Losing your hard drive is heart breaking.
But I've never heard of a virus as vicious as this one! Watch out. It looks like it's real.
I could describe it for you, but I might as well just quote from the horse's mouth -- in this case, a guy name Monotoko reports on this virus in the forums at battleon.com:
"Well, i was surfing the net at college yesterday on my laptop, im allowed to use it in lessons to take notes etc.
I shut it down after my free period and went to physics, switched my laptop on, and upon startup it started some EXTREEMLY annoying music
I looked at it, tried to put some headphones in (sadly my headphons jack appears to no longer be working) and my sound panel is blanked out, so i cant control the volume (MUTE IT!)
eventually i gave in that physics lesson and just used pen and paper.
so i got home and tried to mess about a bit with it, it appears to have a strange virus.
It plays "Miley Cyrus - See You Again" upon startup, each and every time, and just repeats at full volume, it wont accept headphones (just sees them as not there and continues to play)
I found miley.exe as a process, and im assuming thats what controlling it, but when i close it, its just reopens itself and starts playing again"
Do virus makers have any sense of shame? Doesn't even the most deplorable of code crafters have any sense of dignity, or remorse? Do they know no boundaries at all?
If you are on the Internet, be careful! Somewhere out there this virus lurks.
Oh the humanity ! When will the Internet lords deliver us from this great evil? Have they abandonded us in our direst hour !
"Cant find anything....if i had some storage media id be backing stuff up and reinstalling windows right now -.-
ARGH its killing me -.- "
