p2p - worm

Postby TIKITRADER » 13 Aug 2009

I downloaded this indicator and function from here

www.tssupport.com/support/base/?action=article&id=1317

I had just run one of the spyware programs and it detected

P2P-Worm.Win32.KeyGener

The worm is connected to the function of this indicator in the spyware list.
Attached screenshot.

Anyone know what this is if anything, and why or how it may have connected itself to the function ?


I do not go to any sites whatsoever to view or download anything P2P.

Hello TIKITRADER,

Below is the code of the UDVOLUME function, hundreds of people already use this indicator and it's not possible that it is connected directly to the worm. Most probably you have this worm on the computer and it randomly connects to newly created dlls, while f_UDVOLUME.dll was created when you compile the study.

Code: Select all

INPUTS: N(NUMERICSIMPLE);
VARS: UPVOL(0), DNVOL(0), X(0);


UPVOL = 0;
DNVOL = 0;

FOR X = 0 TO N - 1 BEGIN
   IF CLOSE[X] > CLOSE[X+1] THEN UPVOL = UPVOL + VOLUME[X];
   IF CLOSE[X] < CLOSE[X+1] THEN DNVOL = DNVOL + VOLUME[X];
END;

IF DNVOL > 0 THEN UDVOLUME = UPVOL / DNVOL;

Thank you Stanley.
I should have been a little clearer.
I did not think it came from the function itself. I have no idea how or why it attached itself to the function.

Well it's quite obvious, worms usually connect to newly created/installed dlls and that is the answer.
