The Klez Virus
Remove The Klez Virus from PC
The Klez virus propagates through e-mail. The virus prefers e-mails with text attachment in HTML frame. It makes use of the Windows boot up process to get initiated and replicate itself in a quick succession to hamper your system’s performance. Next, it also takes over the host e-mail clients and uses its address book to get spread over to other’s PC in the network.
The Klez virus was identified for the first time in the year 2001. It was the most dominating virus for the next two years.
The Klez virus makes use of host Microsoft Outlook to get proliferated. It is very dynamic and is executed in the preview pane of Microsoft Outlook. It deploys a number of random actions to occupy the inbox of the users, and is very difficult to get detected. It can come with different subject lines or sometimes users may find it in some bounced back e-mail format. However, the recipient will be getting their “From” address line empty.
The subject is pampered with following substrings:
- how are you
- let’s be friends
- so cool a flash, enjoy it
- Your password
- some questions
- please try again
- welcome to my hometown
Hence, users get easily attracted towards it. When the attachment is opened, it starts replication process to cover up the entire hard disk space. As a consequence your computer may get slowed down or entirely crash in a short duration.
