Hello BleepingComputer forums! If anyone has recently seen the Virus, Trojan, Malware removal forum, one can easily see that almost the first 10 pages are nothing but Powelik infections, with myself being one of them. In order to garner more information on this Trojan, where did this recent rise in infections originate from, and what does this Trojan commonly do? Personally, I would like to know more about the virus plaguing me.
