    Password.txt exe?

    So I was at school today, went to a network drive and there was a passwords.txt file (but it was a exe with the name .txt and icon changed)

    'Passwords.txt' .exe file

    I googled it , turns out it has something to do with getting emails through windows address book (which I don't use) but I cannot open google chrome (it crashes) and will it steal my email + passwords that are saved on my browser (GC) at school?



    help me out niggz

    Fine
    Any specific information on the virus? Pretty much any executable could be renamed to passwords.txt...

    Install an antivirus, have the virus removed, then change your passwords..

    Herro Im in the same class as minivan man right now, im the one who found the file. What I was thinking is there is this fag named taylor who wants to be a badass hacker, but he dont know shit. Has anyone found any evidence of this being a common virus, the actual name of the .exe is "paowohx.exe " So maybe Taylor just downloaded and renamed? anti virus blocks it anyways so i dont really care
