    Win32/PSW.Agent.NKU trojan - infected fil lspynx.dll

    My print spooler hadn't worked for about 2 weeks. Turned computer on this morning, NOD v4 updated straight away as it normally does and discovers a trojan - Win32/PSW.Agent.NKU trojan.

    The infected file was system32\lspynix.dll.

    After a reboot my print spooler service sprung back to life. Not a coincidence.

    This trojan must have been sitting there for 2 weeks undetected by NOD32. Did anyone else get this. What damage may this have done to the system?

    Sorry the original heading had incorrect name on it. Have now checked. It was Win32/PSW.Agent.NKU trojan

    Hello BeerDrinker,

    It looks to have only caused issue with the spooler. From reading your post, it looks like your machine is clean from this.

    Thank you,
    Richard

    Thought NOD had a 100% record for catching viruses. My computer must receive 3 NOD updates every day, but this trojan must have been on the system for 2 weeks until there was a virus definition for it.
