Category

* Viruses and Spyware

Type

* Trojan


Troj/Samson-A is a Trojan for the Windows platform.

When the Trojan runs, it creates the file <Windows>\winamp.dll.exe.

The Trojan will copy itself onto any mp3's found on the victim's computer (with the same name as the mp3 file and an appended ".exe" at the end), thus destroying all mp3 files on the system.

The Trojan also proceeds to turn off Winamp.

The following registry entry is created to run winamp.dll.exe on startup:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
ServiceOptionMP3
<Windows>\winamp.dll.exe

The following registry entry is set, disabling the registry editor (regedit):

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?
