I am searching for a solution to this virus:


It copy itself next to every dwg file that opens with an infected autocad.

it looks like the dwg file itself also carry the virus inside, that is how I got it in the first place.


My problem is this:

in google, every search for "acad.fas", returns solutions to removing "acad.vlx" !!!


There is not a single file acad.vlx in my computer.


help plz :smileyfrustrated:



P.S. :  I attached a copy of my acad.fas for anyone intrested to study it. Just plz be careful with it. to attach it, i had to change the format to .txt.

I Will do,

But it looks like the Admin has erased my attached file from the discussion.

Thank you for THE ALERT, but I did alert everybody to be careful with the file, it was attached only for security professionals interest.

Since this acad.fas virus is working without any help from acad.vlx, it is important for the file to be studied.



          I was able to remove the virus using This software:

Trend Micro Internet Security Pro 2010


My autocad 2012 is crashing now and I have to reinstall it and see the result.
