The latest program, in a long line of rogue anti-spyware applications, has been released today called SpyDawn. This program is so new, it has only 3 entries in Google, 2 of them being it's own homepage. SpyDawn is the same as all of the other rogue products. They show exaggerated or fake results so that you are scared enough to buy their products in order to remove them. The reality is that they are all scams. Of course the domain is registered with EstDomains, because what malware provider isn't? It also appears that these people are busy because not only are they the makers of SpyDawn, but they also released SpyCrush last week.If you look at SpyCrush's registration information you will see the following:
Registration Service Provided By: ESTDOMAINS INC

Now if we look at SpyDawn's domain registration info we see:
Registration Service Provided By: ESTDOMAINS INC Contact: +1.3027224217 Website: http://www.estdomains.com
Domain Name: SPYDAWN.COM Registrant: ODS ltd Robyn Turner (turnrobyn@gmail.com) Level 11 Toowong Tower 9 Sherwood Road Toowong null,Qld 4006 AU Tel. +61.38761200
As always, if you are a victim of this malware, we have a removal guide that you can use below. The automated removal methods should be up and running by tomorrow.
