    Default Phisbbank virus in System Volume Information-HTML/Phishbank.CAT

    Hello:

    The following was detected by an on-access scan:

    HTML/Phishbank.CAT

    in a system restore point inside of System volume Information.

    ZASS says it was treated and no further action is necessary.

    When I try to get further info on this particular virus, I can't find any.

    Questions:


    1) What is this "virus"?

    2) How did it get into my system restore and not in any other files thus far?

    3) Is any further action needed, or should I asume it's all been taken care of?

    Thanks in advance:

    -Eliuri

    The Phishbank family includes HTML web pages and e-mail messages that attempt to lure people to "phishing" pages, using obfuscated URLs intended to obscure the page's true location and intent.

    If it is an ee-mail, then that is why it ddoesn't go any further.

    And in my opinion, if I find a virus or other problem in a restore point, then I turn the feature off, then back on. This dumps all restore points so you can't restore malware of some kind. If you do this, make sure you create a restore point after cleaning off the old ones.

    Would you recommend turning off System restore and turning it back on again even if all subsequent thorough scans fail to show any malware?

    Yes, but then I am paranoid.
