What is a WMA/TrojanDownloader?

\015 It was attached to a MP3 file...Is that a virus?...I thought you cant attach viruses to MP3... NOD32 picked it up....can someone explain (in detail if possible) what it is and what it does.\015

Answers :

Officially labelled WMA/TrojanDownloader.GetCodec

Win32/GetCodec.A is a type of malware\015\012that modifies media files. This Trojan converts all media files found\015\012on a computer to the WMA format and adds a field to the header that\015\012includes a URL pointing the user to a new codec, claiming that the\015\012codec has to be downloaded so that the media files can be read.\015\012WMA/TrojanDownloader.GetCodec.Gen is a downloader closely related to\015\012Wimad.N which facilitates infection by GetCodec variants like\015\012Win32/GetCodec.

This is a tough virus to remove so I suggest removing it early on. It can cause alot of damage to your media files.
