So far I've seen on this machine (me, adaware and AVG are still going)
+ AlphaWipe - suspected 'rogue' registry cleaner (although couldn't find any posts on this site about it)
also - when you Google this one - their site comes up right at the top, making it seem real (or is this a real one by the same name?) If it was fake, I would have thought Google would have banned it by now.
Lots of other sites seem to be giving you downloads to it too giving it more credence.
+ PC Privacy Cleaner - rogue anti spyware (not to be confused with privacy cleaner which is on download.com so Iím assuming thatís a real one)
+ Stubinstaller (Limewire swarmed installer) - not too sure about this one.. this and a bunch of random exe's were in the root - some websites propose it to be some sort of advertising program / spyware
+ UCleaner/Ultimate Cleaner - rogue anti spyware (reported by bleeping computer)
+ VirusIsolator - rogue anti-spyware program (reported by Symantec)
.. and i stated googling all the processes and found MWSOEMON and M3SRCHMN exe's which are apparently mywebsearch malware
..and it kept trying to go to a website softwarereferral dot com every 5 minutes. Popups all over the place and message balloons saying that it found spyware (i think this was privacy cleaner trying to infect it even more or trying to get you to pay for it so it would 'remove' them - yeah right).
Also they seem to have - in the docs and settings/USER/shared folder - thousands of (5200 and counting) zipped files that look like lots of different programs .. no doubt for some sharing of some sort - something to trick more people into getting these infected worms.
I swear Iíve never seen a machine so riddled. A nice learning exercise. Prob just going to have to format the bad boy. I'm not sure i would want to trust it again even if i did 'manage' to clean al this stuff off, I'm certainly not going to plug it into a network or the internet any time soon. I swear some people should not be allowed near computers. This should be a nice learning experience for them too.. I have no doubt the owners kids are going to get a bit of a telling off! I just hope no one has done any internet banking on it.
