Yes, Notorious, it would seem this particular crapware is around as a new variant "in the wild", and active once again.
Since the middle 1990's it would seem some folks like to file share virus/trojan/worm infection techniques, and aim to improve their methods
of infecting computers world wide.
In Hamburg, Germany, they used to meet at a place to trade secrets.
They called it Chaos Computer Club or something like that.
Not nice fellows, IMHO.
They would profess the value of fouling up computers for some strange reason.
They still do.
Thats why we'll find trojans bearing mixed bags of tricks that are no more or less than the re-hashed favoritesfrom yester-year.
Since not everyone is updated at all times, and since there are several versions of Windows to mess around with,
they can practice the dark crafts with successful results, trying to re-establish their supremacy over the millions of little lambs
that know nothing of the ways they play.onetwothreefour
If you want up-to-date information on the activities of the "good guys", as they counter the effects of those others
who have chosen to invade, for sport or profit, the PC as we use it,
just spend a little time at the above links and sign up for the email notifications.
There are several other companies that have been in business seven years or so
doing what Sophos does, and also will share that information to any
who are interested in it. Google the major anti-virus companies.
You will run the risk of joining in the battle to some extent, though.
Essentially playing their game with them as they continue it.
Kind of a drag, really. Knowing it goes on as it does.
Better to know than not to, I guess.
