Yes it looks like the Malwarebytes team included detection in its database definitions file. However, from my preliminary investigation I'm also finding cases of White Smoke with the TDSS rootkit -TDL4 Rootkit (bootkit). So depending on the severity of system infection will determine how the disinfection process goes.

Yep, I seemed to get completely rid of it by doing the Malwarebytes and then uninstall the Whitesmoke program then running a combofix. After that it did not seem to show up anywhere. Hope that kills it off

If not, then the TDSS rootkit is probably lingering about.
