Vxidl.B

Vxidl.B is the newest Trojan Downloader to be causing havoc on the internet community of late.

Vxidl.B is further identified as a Browser Helper Object.

Now, what is a Browser Helper object (BHO) you may wonder?

Well, A BHO, or browser helper object, is a component of Microsoft\'s Internet Explorer Web browser application. It is an add-in designed to provide or expand the functionality of the browser and allow developers to improve the Web browser with new features, as time goes by.

So, why are BHO\'s considered bad?

BHO\'s, in and of themselves, are not bad. But, like a lot of other features and functionality, if the BHO can be used to install additional features or functions that are useful, it can also be exploited to install features or functions that are malicious.

Some applications, such as the Google or Yahoo toolbars, are examples of good BHO\'s. But, there are also many examples of BHO\'s which are used to hijack your Web browser home page, spy on your Internet activities and other malicious actions.

As is quite obvious, Vxidl.B tends to enter into a computer system via dubious scripts, embedded in JavaScript or VBS, however there are other ways the infection can enter into a system, via:

• Operating system and web browser exploits
• Unsafe Internet surfing practices
• The downloading and installing of Freeware and Shareware
• The use of Peer-to-peer (P2P) applications
• Visiting questionable web sties

In order to remove Vxidl.B and all its components from an infected computer system, one should remove all files, folders and registry keys and registry values associated with Vxidl.B.

The most important thing to remember is that Vxidl.B should be removed from a computer system as soon as it has been detected!
