I have been using Camfrog video chat for about 8 years now. Except from the numerous hacking atemps from other users I never had any problems. But now it's way above that, here's what happened...


I logged on to Camfrog, an update was available, well not available like my choice to update or not ( has usual) but

necessary or I couldn't use Camfrog at all. So I updated, after 2-3 days my computer was getting quite slow, i did a scan with ADWCleaner, results showed grusskartencenter.com. I found GoogleUpdater on my HardDrive but i had not installed it ever on that pc. I choose to format my pc.


After being suspicious, i decided to scan with Malwarebyte all my usual softwares ( i keep them on a USB key).

OMG the guilty one was Camfrog 6.5.300. Even if you refuse the Ask toolbar it gives you PUP/Optional.Bundled.A.


Now i am using another pc because when it changed Windows permissions & gave me a kernel rootkit.

When i tried to reformat it, Windows stopped installing at 50%. & errors, errors, errors.

?#1 > I think that to revive that pc i will have to flash my BIOS, or it's a wrong move ?


I could not beleive that a company with Over 90 million downloads and 192,488  users online now, would try such a cheap trick. If you want to verify go to >> www.camfrog.com  you will be redirected to downlaod.cnet.com ( i checked many download sources they are all infected), when you are there Download the sotware & analyze it with www.virustotal.com.


?#2 > Since Camfrog has a great comminuty, we are friends, i would like to know how to remove totaly the threat before reinstalling Camfrog 6.5.300.


I looked further into PUP/Optional.Bundled.A , it links to 104 trojans. worms & 1 rootkit.

So if you try it on your pc, use a virtual space.

If you have questions about removal or need help, you might want to post in the "Am I Infected?" or "Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs" forum.
