Know Your Malware: Exvid Removal


Exvid is a virus that infects all the executable files it finds on local hard drives and accessible network shares. The parasite also attempts to spread by e-mail. Exvid sends bogus messages with malicious attachments to randomly generated e-mail addresses. Furthermore, the virus includes an integrated keylogger that records all user keystrokes and periodically sends gathered data to a predetermined e-mail account. Exvid runs on every Windows startup.
