Microsoft released today its new tool Malicious Software Removal Tool codenamed “TITAN”.

There is online version that installs an ActiveX control on your machine. I tried it and it said that I am not infected. That’s good. I am little surprised that it took so little time to scan my system. It definitely did not scan all the files in my system.

Here is the list of the viruses that it searched for:

Win32/Berbew, Win32/Doomjuice, Win32/Gaobot, Win32/Msblast, Win32/Mydoom, Win32/Nachi, Win32/Sasser, Win32/Zindos

There is also a version that can be downloaded (KB890830), but MS says that it will be delivered by Windows Update for Windows XP systems.
