Officially labelled WMA/TrojanDownloader.GetCodec

Win32/GetCodec.A is a type of malware that modifies media files. This Trojan converts all media files found on a computer to the WMA format and adds a field to the header that includes a URL pointing the user to a new codec, claiming that the codec has to be downloaded so that the media files can be read. WMA/TrojanDownloader.GetCodec.Gen is a downloader closely related to Wimad.N which facilitates infection by GetCodec variants like Win32/GetCodec.

This is a tough virus to remove so I suggest removing it early on. It can cause alot of damage to your media files.

    All of your music files could be destroyed and delete it. Then run another scan. If the scan comes up with anything else let me know. You can try to clean it but in my experience that has never helped. It's just easier to delete it and try to find the file again.

I downloaded music on mines and now i cant find it on here no more


Hi!

Run anti virus. Connect your device to your pc and scan for virus. This might recover affected files.

Most usual virus attached with downloaded files activate on mp3 and mp4 and will hide all your files. The files will still be in there if you look for it as removable drive on your pc. It seems that folder where it was saves was in hidden mode.

I do suggest you reformat your player and download safe music files.]

Hope it helps

Remove virus from account


1. Open Yahoo Mail. Use your Yahoo! user ID and password to sign in to Yahoo Mail. Open the email message suspected of containing a virus.
2. Find attachments. The attached files are in the header section above the body of the email. The names of the attachments will appear as blue, active hyperlinks, taking on the actual saved file name given by the sender.
3.Initiate automatic virus scanning and cleaning. Look for another link labeled "Scan and Download Attachment" and click it. If this link does not show, you may have to click directly on the attachment's file name. Look for the alert "Scanning attachment for viruses." The alert may appear for less than a second, dependent upon the size of the file; if you miss the brief message it is not important.
4. Wait and read results. After the virus scan completes, if no virus is detected, you will be given the go-ahead to download the attachment. If a virus is detected, Yahoo Mail will try to automatically clean the attachment, and then present the option to download.
Hopefully, it may help to protect your Email account.
