ok so i just wanted to let people know that there is a new trojan out on the internet, my friend just installed it on my computer and its incredibly annoying to remove. its called pwnage.exe. it also installs a file called ws2_32.bat which creates a ws2_32 folder in your system32 path. it adds a few registry keys etc, i think he may be using it to install a reverse connect trojan. and he has been known to put this stuff on utorrent etc

This is a known trojan and you can get help removing it by reading the FAQ and posting a topic in Malware Removal with your log...

I agree with Budfred's suggestion.

Not sure what kind of "friend" this could be if he's willing to do this... Does he know this is illegal...? Does your local police know about this...?
