That is strange how are your recognizing it are you running Symantec as well on your PC?
Have you submitted the file ti www.virustotal.com and see what is the result?
You can try the free scanners in the link below especially getsusp which will report anything suspect to Mcafee (add your email details to its preferences. also with Malwarebytes do not install or accept the premium trial as it can clash with your McAfee install.
According to Symantec this affects Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows XP, all of which are now EOL OS's.
McAfee calls it another name, Backdoor-ASZ: http://126.96.36.199/threat-intelligence/malware/default.aspx?id=115409 and it should be easily removable, since 2004.
Had to go searching for it though and found that information here: Trend Micro Threat Encyclopedia | Latest information on malware, spam, malicious URLs, vulnerabilities
That is odd. I am running Windows 7 and McAfee blocks the connection to the internet "xeory" is trying to make. However, the AV software does not recognize or remove it from my system.
Thanks Tony, I will give that a try as well. As I mention below McAfee blocks the connection to the internet "xeory.exe" is trying to make. However, the AV software does not recognize or remove it from my system.
There are often variants that come out at intervals after the original. You could try running GetSusp from that link Tony gave, it will submit anything suspicious to the labs and, if you've entered your email under settings, they'll let you know the results.
