    Hey all,

    A weird problem this one..

    While looking at one of our contract customers systems, we noticed that 4 or 5 folders on the ‘C’ drive had become hidden and in their place were Executable files (.exe) that have the same name and have the folder icon.

    We have run a full scan with a Kaspersky trial, which brings up nothing, and are about to run a full scan with Ad-Aware as well..

    I’ve searched :google: to no avail..

    This same error happens on their server (which only had an expired trial version of some AV on it for god knows how long) and a few PC’s which all have Avast! on them (All up to date)..

    Any ideas would be muchly appreciated.. :?

    EDIT: Also, thankfully they haven’t actually clicked on the .EXE versions yet, but randomly a web page will pop up displaying a chinese website, of aigianming… Aigian Ming? Ai Gian Ming??

    Not gonna post it unless you want me to..

    Thanks,

    DJ
