Worm spreads Harry Potter rumor
by Marianna Schmudlach / July 4, 2007 1:50 AM PDT

July 4th, 2007 by Carolyn Guevarra
Harry Potter is dead.

This is the rumor that malware authors are spreading together with their malicious program, which Trend Micro detects as WORM_HAIRY.A. Once again these authors capitalize on highly-anticipated events ? in this case the upcoming release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in July 21st ? in order to spread their malicious codes to the public. Note that this was not the first Harry Potter-related malware TrendLabs has encountered recently: just a couple of weeks ago a Trojan-carrying email promising free premiere tickets for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie was discovered.

So to Harry Potter fans who got this news, don?t worry? It?s just a rumor. But then again, worry about what?s in your computer now. A worm may already be doing its own ?magic? tricks ? which include displaying a message (see image below) and redirecting your browser to Harry Putter and the Chamber of Cheesecakes (they probably want you to buy this book) ? on your system.

Spy Shredder

In reply to: SpyShredder

I am running Windows XP home and I keep gettings pop-ups for this Spy Shredder. I tried doing what the link that you left on C.Net said, but I do not use Symantic and I haven't been able to find it in the registry editor with a couple of complete system virus scans. Anything else that you know of to clean this annoyance from my hard drive? Thanks, Bill

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
