    Does anyone have any information on a trojan, named trojan.js.logo ?

    My Mum & Dads computer was infected with it last night, and Kaspersky Anti Virus picked it up during a scheduled scan.

    I have tried doing a search for it on Google but I can't find anything about it, I am posting from my own machine here but tomorrow I could post in the (startup list) if you need it.

    I have left the computer as it is for the moment untill I find out more about so I can remove any registry entries it may have created ect.

    Thanks very much for your help and support

    Thanks for the help and quick reply!

    I didn't manage to find it on the symantec website but I have just found something about it on the McAfee website, here is what it say's;

    When a web page containing this trojan is viewed in the web browser, a Javascript attempts to use the Scriptlet.Typelib security hole to create the file LOGO.HTA in the user's startup folder. The next time the computer is rebooted, the LOGO.HTA creates some entries in the user's favorites folder without permission.
    The trojan web page is detected as JS/Logo.dr, the HTA file is detected as JS/Logo, and the links it creates are detected as JS/Logo.dropped.

    I will have KAV remove it and rescan with something like TDS-3 and the cleaner just to make sure!

    Thanks again for your help
