Virus:W32/Parite is a memory-resident polymorphic virus that infects executable files with EXE and SCR extensions.
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
Disinfection of this virus should be done as follows:
Please make sure that the computer is disconnected from the network while disinfection is done and that all computers in the same network are disinfected. Otherwise the virus will re-infect already disinfected computers on the network.
As the virus installs a dropper with a TMP extrension on the hard drive, it is recommended to add the TMP extension to the list of extensions scanned by the F-Secure security product.
More information on the scanning and removal options available in your F-Secure product can be found in the Help Center.
You may also refer to the Knowledge Base on the F-Secure Community site for further assistance.
The virus can also infect files on connected network drives.
Parite installs a dropper file onto the system.
