    Symantec a/v Win32/Mangzamela.a backdoor

      Does anyone know McAfee's signature or name equivalent for what Symantec calls the Win32/Mangzamela.a backdoor Trojan?

          Moved this to Malware Discussion > Corporate User Assistance from Management Platform as probably a more apt spot.

           

          The strange thing is I can't even find it in Symantec's database...do you have a link?

            I don't know what the correct terminology is for this, but I suspect a possible leg-pull.

             

            First, Symantec classify this kind of threat not with a "Win32/" prefix but with "W32/".

            Second, the name "Mangzamela.a" is nowhere to be found in the Symantec A-Z of current threats and risks.

            Third, a search for "Mangzamela" in Yahoo turns up just one result, and in Google just 8 results. All the links point to this community, and this poster.

             

            I suggest that the poster return and explain himself, or give a correct identification for this supposed Trojan.

             

            Edit - On the other hand, I find a whole host of entries for something called "dangdut mencari mangsa mela barby sexsy free Mp3 Download" and suchlike.

              Thanks, and I agree.  OP to explain this.
