Suspected Trojan in shared folder.


Recently I have found couple of suspected trojans on my shared folders, and everytime I run the McAfee VSE 8.7 it does not detect the trojans, so I use other removal tools to remove these trojans.

I'm managing 2000 + clients of McAfee with ePO 4.0.

Is there any solutions to this matter, and how can I stop this trojans from coming in onto my network?

I have attached the sample of the trojan, is called the xpoxlk.exe and it's face is green with a black pacth on it's eye.

Re: Suspected Trojan in shared folder.


please upload the sample for analysis to, where a lot of vendor's engines will analyze it.

/What causes you to believe that it is a trojan? Others informed you, some third party scan informed you or other?/

Others may recommend setting Artemis to high or very high within the on-demand scan that you start on this folder from within Virusscan Console. I recommend doing a third party check as described above, in addition.


Re: Suspected Trojan in shared folder.

HI Attila,

Thanks for your response, all i saw was a green lookalike cartoon face with pacthed eye and I thought it must be a virus and i also googled it's name and found out that it is indeed a trojan that gets on the shared folder thorugh the network. I will change the Artemis to high and see if McAfee picks it up.
