Thought I would post this solution on TSG since it seems to be a recent problem with no readily found solution.

My Yahoo Messenger recently began automatically sending out the following URLs at about 5 minute intervals to people with whom I was chatting.
DO NOT CLICK ON THESE FOUR LINKS UNLESS YOU WISH TO BECOME INFECTED

www.darut.da.ru
www.chatvoice.tk
www.tchatch.tk
www.funphotos.tk

Not sure how my machine became infected with this Trojan. The following link that I found gives additional information and removal instructions.

http://www.helpbytes.co.uk/removal.php

My Norton Anti-Virus with recent definitions and Ad-Aware 5.0 did not detect the Trojan. Others have reported that SpyBot is also not effective. The removal instructions at the above site are simple to follow. I did not everything indicated in the instructions on my system, but removed what I did find.

Note the regkey in step 7 should be:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Software
Microsoft
Windows
CurrentVersion
Run
