Win32/Kheagol.Patch.A

Posted: February 27, 2012 | Category: Trojans | Threat Level: 9/10
Win32/Kheagol.Patch.A is a Trojan that's implemented as a malicious file alteration (in most cases, for .dll files) that's installed by other Trojans from the same family. Since the Win32/Kheagol family of banking Trojans is a multi-component family that coordinates attacks between individual members to steal financial information, you should consider the presence of Win32/Kheagol.Patch.A or any other related PC threat to be a high-level breach of your computer's safety and privacy. As is the case with most types of spyware, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have found that symptoms...

Posted: February 27, 2012 | Category: Trojans | Threat Level: 9/10
Trojan.Fareit.C is a seditious Trojan infection, which is included in a malware attack based on a fake YouTube video. Trojan.Fareit.C is involved in a malicious email, which pretends to come from YouTube and has the subject line 'Your video on the TOP of YouTube'.

Believesearch.info

Posted: February 27, 2012 | Category: Browser Hijackers | Threat Level: 5/10
Screenshot Believesearch.info is a search engine site that is noted for several marks of suspicious behavior – its support by browser-hijacking PC threats, its lack of significant promotional efforts by normal channels, and its strong resemblance to similar types of search engines that are known for poor quality control of their links and associated content. Although SpywareRemove.com malware researchers haven't seen any signs of Believesearch.info being used to install malicious software or engage in other types of direct attacks, you should be cautious about sites that Believesearch.info links...

Infomash.org

Posted: February 27, 2012 | Category: Browser Hijackers | Threat Level: 5/10
Screenshot Infomash.org is a search engine with a questionable reputation due to its links with browser redirect attacks, relationships with other sites of poor repute and its overall poor scores in most areas of online safety, privacy and informational accuracy. Although Infomash.org may not directly harm your PC, interaction with sites that Infomash.org promotes may not be advisable, since Infomash.org has been known to associate with sites that provide dangerous medical advice, spam or other forms of harmful content. Browser hijackers that promote Infomash.org do so via Google redirect attacks...

Mapbird.info

Posted: February 27, 2012 | Category: Browser Hijackers | Threat Level: 5/10
Screenshot Mapbird.info is a clone of the decidedly imitable Ninjaa.info and similar sites that portray themselves as legitimate search engines. While search results from Mapbird.info may, upon occasion, provide what you're looking for, SpywareRemove.com malware experts recommend that you be cautious around content that's provided by Mapbird.info due to its connection with browser hijackers and blacklisted hosts. Under most circumstances, you'll find yourself at Mapbird.info after your PC has been infected by a PC threat that redirects your browser to Mapbird.info without permission – the...

ACCDFISA Protection Program Ransomware

Posted: February 27, 2012 | Category: Ransomware
Screenshot ACCDFISA Protection Program is a fake application that pretends to be a notice and threat from legal authorities that have found your computer to be engaged in pornography-related crimes. However, as a standard ransomware Trojan, ACCDFISA Protection Program isn't from any sort of real legal institution and isn't able to carry out its threats of encrypting or deleting your files. Since ACCDFISA Protection Program will block your ability to access all programs, including anti-malware scanners that could remove ACCDFISA Protection Program, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers recommend...

Win32/Rovnix

Posted: February 27, 2012 | Category: Trojans | Threat Level: 9/10
Win32/Rovnix is a family of boot sector rootkits (AKA bootkits) that consist of multiple components and variants, all of which are dangerous to your computer's security and privacy to a degree that can range from moderately high to immensely so. Updated variants of Win32/Rovnix rootkits can be considered even more difficult to detect than standard rootkits due to their inclusion of unorthodox infection methods and self-preserving anti-security functions. Some components in a Win32/Rovnix infection, such as Win32/Rovnix.B, are used primarily to download, install and run other malicious...

TROJ_FAKEAV.CLS

Posted: February 24, 2012 | Category: Trojans | Threat Level: 9/10
TROJ_FAKEAV.CLS is a Trojan downloader that's used to install fake anti-virus applications and related PC threats. Due to TROJ_FAKEAV.CLS's recent stream of propagation throughout fake Amy Winehouse news sites, SpywareRemove.com malware experts warn to exercise caution for unusual sites that appear in search results, even if a reputable search engine is used. However, at the time of this writing, all confirmed TROJ_FAKEAV.CLS-distributing sites that use standard search engine exploits to modify their listings have been shut down by appropriate authorities, and TROJ_FAKEAV.CLS's brief...

Butterflysearch.net

Posted: February 24, 2012 | Category: Browser Hijackers | Threat Level: 5/10
Screenshot Butterflysearch.net is a website that fakes a search engine-like existence to distribute PC threats. Browser hijackers assist in Butterflysearch.net's little scheme by forcing your web browser to redirect itself to Butterflysearch.net from unrelated sites, especially popular search engines (such as Google) or links from popular media sites (like YouTube). Contact with Butterflysearch.net or visible signs of redirects to Butterflysearch.net should be thought of as a warning sign to scan your PC with a qualified anti-malware scanner, lest other PC threats be installed without your consent....

Asdvd.info

Posted: February 24, 2012 | Category: Browser Hijackers | Threat Level: 5/10
Screenshot Asdvd.info's description makes enticing offers of free games, parenting information and other topics that would be of interest to the average web surfer, but you should treat visits to Asdvd.info with a modicum of paranoia, since Asdvd.info has been noted both for its promotion by Google redirect attacks and for its usage of a design scheme that's widely used by similar websites. While links from Asdvd.info are likely to provide you with irrelevant or advertisement-based content, Asdvd.info-promoting browser hijackers may censor your search results to prevent you from using other search...

Dbgame.info

Posted: February 24, 2012 | Category: Browser Hijackers | Threat Level: 5/10
Screenshot On first glance, Dbgame.info looks like a legitimate search engine, but Dbgame.info's looks may also be its downfall due to Dbgame.info sharing the same visual scheme as other types of search sites that are promoted by browser hijackers. Dbgame.info also has this promotional method in common with its identical twin sites, and redirect attacks that force your browser to load Dbgame.info are a symptom of an active PC threat on your computer. Since PC threats that include Dbgame.info-redirecting capabilities are also likely to expose you to malicious sites that propagate other types of...

Trojan.Dropper.UAJ is a Trojan that uses unusually covert methods to launch itself and install a backdoor Trojan that compromises your computer's security functions. The presence of either Trojan.Dropper.UAJ or its payload, Backdoor.Zxshell.B , should be considered a massive peril to your computer's safety and the privacy of your files, but many types of anti-malware products may fail to detect Trojan.Dropper.UAJ due to its non-standard startup process.

Veoh toolbar

Posted: February 23, 2012 | Category: Bad Toolbars | Threat Level: 1/10
Veoh toolbar is found to be annoying by computer users, although Veoh toolbar and the player it introduces, is quite legitimate. The trick related to the Veoh toolbar is that, although a PC user finds the Veoh toolbar annoying and uninstalls the player, removal of Veoh toolbar is not complete, or there's no player at all to uninstall, and a PC user doesn't know how to delete the unwanted extension from the web browser. Veoh toolbar could interfere with Google and other search engines, and try to be the favorite tool for the affected computer user's web browser. Requests to Google could...

Posted: February 22, 2012 | Category: Malware | Threat Level: 6/10
Mal/ExpJS-AA is a malicious file that's crafted explicitly to take advantage of JavaScript exploits while Mal/ExpJS-AA attacks your PC. Although Mal/ExpJS-AA can be installed from most sources that distribute PC threats, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers note that Mal/ExpJS-AA's most visible attacks have involved spam e-mail links. These links use redirect-based exploits to force you to download other PC threats, such as Mal/ExpJS-AA, which can create serious security vulnerabilities for your computer. Being careful around unusual file attachments or links from strange e-mail messages...
