The file that is downloading through the goo.gl shortened address redirecting to [invalid URL].

First, I sent an abuse report to google and hotfile.

The analysis of this file on virustotal ([invalid URL]) show that this file is infected with a new virus found only by 4 antivirus. (they were only 2 one hour ago).

 

Here is some more informations on this virus :

[invalid URL]

[invalid URL]

 

It looks like this virus modifies startup information and is launched each time the PC starts.

Check startup values using a tool like CCleaner, and check for exe on you AppData folder.

Re: lol is this your new picture on skype [link removed] virus

I just posted in the older thread about how to check your computer for it.

http://community.skype.com/t5/Security-Privacy-Trust-and/I-m-have-very-big-problems/m-p/1095340/high...

I haven't been able to track down where it's hiding in the registry as the computer I was working on didn't get its registry infected. If you follow that and it's still respawning itself then you need to get help hunting the virus out of your registry.

So i accidentally clicked it and something started to open in browser but close I'm hoping my anti-virus shut it down but something also downloaded? I didn't open that just deleted it. Does it mean I'm safe? Currently scanning pc just to be sure.

Re: lol is this your new picture on skype [link removed] virus

I've have catched it as well. It's  probably a new version because Symantec Endpoint Protection have not reacted at it, when i've acked to check that archive. O_o

 

To clean up you have to do following steps:

1.Change Status in Skype to "I have catched a virus!!! Do not go by the link!". If it is possible delete all the mesages virus had sent.

2.Uninstall Skype.

3.Run msconfig. Search for suspicious autoorun files from c:\users\YourUSER\appdata\... (I had pmpupj.exe)take out checkmark and write down location and file name

4. Go to that location and delete that file and all other suspicious files with same size as it( there were almost ten files with names CF??).

5. Run regedit and search for the file name from step 2. delete all the keys and folders that search have found.
6. Reboot in safe mode, run msconfig if yu still have it there do steps 3-5.

 

It have helped me.

It seems part of this trojan is installing the "ZeroAccess" trojan. There's a removal tool for this from Symantec: http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2012-100303-2452-99&tabid=3
