Spelling is correct. This trojan is detected by avast as show here and a variant by Kaspersky as show here.

It can also be found in the clamav-virusdb database.

Counterspy appears to detect a Win32.Banload.gc variant as shown here

Same thing happened to me. I no longer run AIM so I'm not sure how it got here...or that it was here the whole time and nothing picked it up.

I noticed no malicious activity.

I have found Spyware Doctor to have quite possibly the best detection out of all other spyware detection programs.

They are usually among the first to detect and remove such files.
