Wasn't there a news story several months ago about malware with the signature "Lebron James" and "Upayadv1." I just stumbled onto those directories on my machine and sanitized them, but I'd like to track down the historical record of this malware. Googling those two strings (and various permutations) didn't help me at all. Can anybody tell me when this malware was in the news, and what were the circumstances of it's news coverage? TIA

Greetings.

Never heard of it. Since this topic does not involve the active removal of malware it is being closed.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
