Whack-a-mole is a game making its way around the Internet. When playing, the user attempts to whack moles that continually pop up out of the ground. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? Well, don't get too excited. The true purpose of this game isn't to provide you with entertainment, but to provide entertainment for the hacker who's sifting through the contents of your hard drive.
Whack-a-mole is a modifed version of NetBus. It currently affects Windows 95/98 PC's and Windows NT PC's.
Provided below, is a picture of what the Whack-a-Mole game looks like. If you have this game on your system, I highly suggest that you check your system for the NetBus server portion.
Ports 12361 and 12362 (by default) are used to establish its connection between the "client" and "server".
Once installed, it is rerun every time the computer is started by means of an entry under the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" branch in the Registry.
How to Remove
Several steps involve working within the Windows 95/98 or Windows NT registry. And although the steps are easy, I cannot be held responsible if a mistake is made. Please use caution.
Congratulations, Whack-a-mole has been removed from your system.
