There has been an update on the rogue security software that the Vundo Trojan has started promoting. The rogues of choice for Vundo are now Malware Defender 2009, Antivirus XP Pro, and VirusRemover2009. These rogues are advertised by Vundo hijacking your desktop wallpaper, adding security warnings at the top of Internet Explorer, and by displaying fake security alerts from the Windows taskbar.




Malware Defender 2009

VirusRemover2009
