Angry linux/osf.3974 Removal ?


Hi,

I hope this is not treated as an x-post, this is a follow on from a thread in slackware.. (I'm using slack 9.1 atm as an internet server, no XGui)

I contracted a dose of the linux.osf.3974 virus.

I have only managed to find a removal for the 8759 variant...

Dose anyone know of a tool that will remove, or have a script lerking in their achieves.. Google unfortunately, hasn't been that helpful. So I presume this is not a common problem with this bug.

Unfortunately, I am not a coder, so do not know enough to re-do the code for the tool I found c/w source.

Any other suggestions?

http://www.clamav.net/ is supposed to find it, not sure if it fixes it though.

Hmm, sorry but that was my only bet on this one.
You're rigth about googling, did a quick one and it turned up next to nothing.
You might as well try f-prot if you haven't already although I'm sceptical about it's cleaning abilities as well.
