    When I go to Windows Update it shows my system is current. However, last
    night I encountered a problem . My virus protection said I had Bloodhound
    Trojan. I deleted my temporary internet files to correct this. It seems I
    need OE 837009 update. How do I find if I have this or not? Windows update
    is suppose to tell me if I need it. Since it came out in 2004 I assumed I
    was already covered for this threat because I keep all the updates current.
    Can anyone shed any light on this for me as I am "just stumped"
    Thanks,
    Marsha

  2. Marsha,

    From : http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS04-013.mspx
    Under : Security Update Information

    " Confirm that Q837009 appears in the Update Versions field in the About
    Internet Explorer dialog box. "

    Translation : Open Internet Explorer, click About. Q837009 should be
    listed . If XP SP2 is installed then the update is NOT needed and will
    not be listed.

    Which antivirus software detected the Bloodhound Trojan and what is the
    specific name it gave it ? Which version of Windows are you running ?

    Internet Explorer Version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519
    Norton Anti virus 2005 (all updates current)
    Bloodhound.Exploit.6
    Windows XP SP2 (all updates current)

    I should be protected. I really don't understand why it happened. I had
    recently run PC Pitstop & was reading one of the newsgroups when it popped
    up.
    Thanks for your help. I appreciated it.

  4. Marsha,

    The virus was detected in Temporary Internet Files, correct ? The system
    was not actually infected, correct ?
    Have a look here for a possible explanation :
