I Disagree (as an I.T. Expert)
Which EA ?
it's not all of them, because i use EA's and i don't have this virus, so which EA does this pertain to so that we can avoid installing that particular EA
Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete
Open Task Manager
and kill the process
or, you could just kill the process of MT-4 completely and it will stop executing trades randomly
beyond this... Your antivirus program should be picking up on it
but as for the computer being "Paralyzed" hehe
No mate, it doesn't work like that
in order for your computer to be completely useless to you , it would need to take control of your computer
from a system level
and even then, you could restart the computer in Safe mode and troubleshoot it from there
beyond this.. You could just re-install MT-4 and the EA would be gone
Uninstall it from the Registry Editor and all traces of anything associated with it
and IT'S GONE
Re-install MT-4....... Happy days.
so.. what is the EA that triggers it ?
now.. i did some quick research on this
if it's anything like this FROM FXCM
then i would say the following
- Because it's not all brokers that are affected,
- the RAW MT-4 is not affected
- it is a case of THE COPY OF MT-4 THAT GETS DOWNLOAD FROM FXCM HAS BEEN COMPROMISED , Meaning it will only affect the clients of FXCM
now. this is the responsibility of FXCM to resolve and to ensure that they have a virus free copy ready for download.
if however it is like you say
that being... that the copy from the broker is good, but AFTER INSTALLING AND EA the virus is deployed
then... AVOID THE EA
but if this was to happen from a client of FXCM
as soon as you see... HIT
CTRL ALT DELETE and kill the process
another DRASTIC MEASURE you could do is...
PULL THE POWER CABLE OUT OF THE BACK OF YOUR COMPUTER
this will stop any further trades from happening
because MT-4 can only executes trade via the broker if the internet connection is not severed
another thing you could do is... DISCONNECT YOUR LAN CABLE
Shutdown your computer
Hope this helps
