Remove Zimuse from infected computers
BitDefender identified a new e-threat that combines the destructive behavior of a virus with the spreading mechanisms of a worm. Two variants are known to this day.
Worm.Zimuse.A enters the computer disguised as an apparently harmless IQ Test. Once executed, the worm creates between seven and eleven copies of itself (depending on the variant) in critical areas of the Windows system.
In order to stay safe, BitDefender recommends downloading, installing and updating a complete antimalware suite with antivirus, antispam, antiphishing and firewall protection. Users should also employ extra caution when prompted to open files from unfamiliar locations.
Download and run the tools provided below to rid your computer of this e-threat.
