OK, this is on the MySpace forums, people have been getting popups for this website when on MySpace.

From what I can gather it seems to work rather like antivirus2009 in the way that you have to close your browser because you cannot close the popup window. We also know it's rogue spyware because in one case it told a user that she has a Windows virus on her Mac computer!

Just wondering does anyone else have any more information about this spyware and how to remove it?
