Here is a description of the virus

Troj/Zlob-WG is a Trojan for the Windows platform. When installed Troj/Zlob-WG displays a fake license agreement for a product called 'Perfect Codec 4.0 Setup'.

Some people think they use linux and any virus can not harm their system. But I want to say why anti virus companies produce anti virus program for Linux distributions? And some viruses like Win32: Brontok [it is a worm] spread through Linux and windows and cuses harm in windows. Does anybody aware about it?

I cant remember the last time I had a virus... just use a good anti-virus (I use AVG free) play smart, and be able to identify potentially dangerous sites or emails... and you should be too bad. Oh I use windows defender too which is from from the windows download site... Seems to be doing its job.

No i haven't either but then again it would only infect victims that are looking for a "perfect codec" but then again nothing in this world is perfect Wink. I suggest getting codecs from a trusted website like microsoft or something that is deemed trustworthy.

First of all to turn peoples fear into money Wink
Second to make sure that Linux users do not hand viruses over to their fellows on windows-machines.
