Win32/PolyCrypt Virus on my box...help?
Ok, been running Ubuntu for about two years now quite happily, and even though it's not really thought of as necessary I still scan for viruses every single day...give me a break, Windows conditioned me to do it for years http://ubuntuforums.org/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif
So anyway, I've never had a virus of any kind for any system on a Linux box before, so my question is:
How do I remove a Windows virus from a Linux (Ubuntu) machine?
I did a scan with AVG (for some reason Clam has never been able to run on my computer) and to my surprise it showed me that I have Win32/PolyCrypt in multiple locations on my computer.
I know I can't just delete the files as many are needed files. Some listed I don't know what they are, but many I recognize.
Anyone know what I should do? I don't want to pass this on to Windows users.
Here's the infected files output...
For a virus that's supposed to be just for Windows, it sure does know how to spread itself around a Linux operating system.
I can't find any info on how to remove Windows viruses from a Linux machine, maybe I'm searching for the wrong thing?
