Cleaning hybris.worm-aka Snow White

By neognome ·
Does anyone know how to clean the win32.hybris.b.worm? ( snow white ) This is my second infection. So far the only way we've found is format. Protector Plus Anti-Virus will detect it, but not disinfect it. Niether Norton nor McAfee will even detect it w/the updated DAT files. If anyone knows of a clean up, alot of people in my area will be greatful. Thanks!

The WSOCK32.DLL file must be restored from backup. This can be done by:

Windows 98
- Click the START MENU|RUN, type SFC and click OK.
- Choose Extract one file from the installation disk
- Type C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WSOCK32.DLL in the box and click Start.
- In the Restore from box type C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS or browse to the Win98 directory on your Windows98 CD-ROM
- Click OK and follow remaining prompts

Windows95
- Click the START MENU|SHUT DOWN choose RESTART IN MS-DOS MODE
- Type: EXTRACT /A C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\WIN95_11.CAB WSOCK32.DLL /L C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
or
- Insert your Windows95 CD-ROM and type:
EXTRACT /A \WIN95\WIN95_11.CAB WSOCK32.DLL /L C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM Where is your CD-ROM drive

McAfee doesn't even detect the worm w/ the updated dat files. Protector Plus www.plps.com . That's the best one out. But thanks for your response. I really appreciate it.
