  1. I don't know if I'm supposed to say it here, but from yesterday (12/27) my virus scanner detected the w32/hllp.philis.bx virus on all executables of my computer (all detected as *.exe.exe though, not as simple *.exe) and resorted either to "cleaning" or "deleting" them. Some files weren't really "deleted", especially the ones officially installed. But some have been lost. I could find neither my favourite Doom executables (Eternity, Doom, Doomp, Doom2p), nor a hex editor I like using (zapit), nor mus2midi from XWE (which survived). Most "installed" software seemed intact, though I didn't check on everything.

    Unfortunately after about three hours the infection was detected again, on all executables again.

    I may mention that I changed my provider (and thus router) prior to catching this infection -- either this or it is the antivirus's fault: could it be that its scheduled scanning was being wrong? I hope it's only an antivirus error causing all this.

    I have Windows XP SP3 by the way. And McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 7.0.0.

    Maybe I should switch to another OS...? Or simply another antivirus? :)

    I hope I can get to use this computer again by daylight... :/

      thanks for not trolling. This was my first real blog here.

      I merely didn't firewall the server, so strangers' worms were popping in (probably like they do when they detect network connections). The av was doing what it should have been doing. I'll only have to redownload or reinstall whatever exes were lost.

      if I had this back in 2005 I would have been the god of my school.
