There is more than one way to keep malware away from your computer, and installing an antivirus solution on your system can keep you safe, as long as you keep it updated.

A few words about the Net-Worm.Win32.Kido virus

It is not recommended to wait until your antivirus solution detects the infection because until then, this worm might have already broken Internet connection or infected the removable drives plugged into the host PC.

Typically, this worm attacks network computers via 445 or 139 TCP port, exploiting the Windows vulnerability MS08-067. It also creates files called autorun.inf and RECYCLED\{SID}\RANDOM_NAME.vmx on removable drives, and it registers itself to the system services under a randomly-generated name.

Signs that show your system is infected

There are multiple symptoms that can help you detect when your computer has been infected with Net-Worm.Win32.Kido, such as difficulties in accessing the websites of popular antivirus companies or inability to activate a paid license of an antivirus program. Additionally, the security products that use Intrusion Detection System detect an attack called “Intrusion.Win.NETAPI.buffer-overflow.exploit.”

Portable tool and command-line running mode

This worm has several variants that might go undetected unless a dedicated app like Net-Worm.Win32.Kido Remover is used. It does not require installation and it runs as a command-line tool that scans threads, processes and modules on your computer then kills threads and removes hooks. Due to the severity of this infection, it is advisable not to stop the application before the scanning process is complete.

Bottom line

To sum up, Net-Worm.Win32.Kido Remover can help you clean your computer and restore it to full functionality after it has been infected with the Kido network worm.
