This article was originally created by myself, the [User:Sloth monkey|sloth monkey], (14:48, 13 July 2006) under the article named "Media Codec". This is simply because I encountered the trojan myself (under the names zipcodec and media codec) and decided to check Wiki for any information on the fishy-looking devils. Lo and behold, there was nothing to be found in the entire universe of Wikipedia. But there was info on it available from Symantec (I use Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition).

After I wrote it, some others helped to improve the article, but more than anyone it seems AxelBoldt did some good work to improve things (01:10, 12 August 2006 to 18:20, 18 September 2006). So thanks for that, buddy.

Then on September 19, 2006, I created this article (Trojan.Emcodec.E) and redirected the Media Codec article.

There now you know the history of things. As if you cared. sloth_monkey 10:32, 19 September 2006 (UTC)


If anyone else finds additional info or especially different names that this thing goes by, please contribute by listing it here and also creating a new article for the varient, redirecting it to Trojan.Emcodec.E. Thanks.

On a completely unrelated note, I wrote most of the article on Robert Kiyosaki and so I obviously feel the man's worth listening to. Please read the article if you feel so inclined. sloth_monkey 10:32, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
