There is above-referenced malware which is incredibly sturdy and utterly resilient to any attempts of removal. These include:
- Goes undetected by virus scanners, among them McAfee VSE, Avira AntiVir, BitDefender, and Spyware Doctor. Only Prevx picks up on it correctly as the file creation date and time coincide with a Blackster infection.
- Other pointers towards its malicious character include: messing with the start menu, deletion of program shortcuts to the right of it, ascribing "virus alert" in capitalised letters to the notification area clock, changing the background of desktop icon's text to Blackster's blue colour, hiding hard drives in My Computer and more UI alterations that go in a similar vein.
- > Reinscribes itself into the registry even when autoruns.exe is deployed in safe mode. Its companion- gnowmebk.dll- has also been a tough nut, but crackable.
- Unlisted as a process running.
