There is a well-respected and very useful site that everyone in the anti-virus industry uses – sometimes several times a day: Virus Total. You can upload suspicious files or their check sums to Virus Total to see if a file is malicious. The makers of a new rogue have picked up on the Virus Total name in an effort to make their malicious creation look like something legitimate:

Thanks quietman7. I just had a thought; along with having creators of anti programs to clean out the bad stuff and blocking others there should be a group of highly skilled people in there own way to clean and wipe the creators of such bad things. Let us call them (WIPE WATER). They would be pricey at first but in the long run I think it would be worth it. This is just one of my (BLACK) thoughts.
