Firefox - Malaware -


My question is can this run in linux or not ?

From the report ….

SYMPTOMS:
Presence of the:
“%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npbasic.dll”
“%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\chrome\chrome\content\browser.js”
files in the Mozilla Firefox’s plugins and chrome folders.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION:
It drops an executable file (which is a Firefox 3 plugin) and a JavaScript file (detected by Bitdefender as: Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A) into the Firefox plugins and chrome folders respectively.

Checks may be needed to see if similar version of the code can run in linux ….

Will the following files run in linux ?
(using wine ? will a .dll run in linux !!!)
Can the virus work without the .dll running ?

Is there another version that works within Linux ?

Does anybody know - if it as been checked out yet ?
