    last weekend, may virus alert na lumalabas whenever attempt ko play cd sa computer. search ko sa google "trojan media player" voila!

    wallon virus wrecks windows media player.

    A new mass-mailing virus called Wallon, which wipes out Windows Media Player and is activated when a user tries to play MP3 or video files from an infected PC, was discovered in Europe on Tuesday (story modified 12 may 04, 11:44am pdt) ...Maikel Albrecht, a product manager at Finnish security company F-Secure, said that because of recent virus outbreaks, users are less willing to open e-mail attachments, which is why Wallon's author is counting on users clicking on an e-mail link instead.

    "The link in the e-mail points to the actual virus, so if you click the link, you download the virus." Albrecht said.

    However, once the PC is infected, Wallon remains dormant until the user tries to run a media file such as an MP3 or a video...



    question: pardon my ignorance... nai-infect din ba cd if played sa infected PC?

    Ok lang pag sa WMA ang infected para matamaan na naman ang Microsoft. Mag- Real10 Player na lang po kayo. Tungkol po sa tanong hindi pwedeng ma-infect ang CD dahil WORM (Write Once Read Many) sya.
