Generic28.AULI is a recently-detected Trojan that’s often installed along with other PC threats. Along with symptoms that are caused by related types of hostile software, Generic28.AULI may change your Windows Registry, but isn’t likely to create other obvious symptoms – besides, of course, warning messages from any anti-malware programs that are installed on your PC. SpywareRemove.com malware analysts have found that some Generic28.AULI attacks have been preceded by fake Microsoft Windows updates, and note that such symptoms are, in and of themselves, often a sign of infection by a Trojan dropper or similar PC threat. Since Generic28.AULI’s newness to the malware scene has left its complete payload obfuscated at the time of this writing, it’s recommended that you scan your PC to find and remove Generic28.AULI and anything else that came with Generic28.AULI ASAP, instead of trying to determine the location or danger level of Generic28.AULI by yourself.
Generic28.AULI, the Trojan with a Spy at Your Back
All recent Generic28.AULI attacks have been found to include PSW.SpyEye (AKA Trojan:Win32/Spyeye, TR/Spy.SpyEyes.hug or TSPY_SPYEYE.VI), a banking Trojan. Like every other banking Trojan, Generic28.AULI’s partner PSW.SpyEye specializes in stealing bank account data, but SpywareRemove.com malware researchers note that PSW.SpyEye also includes more generically-applicable spyware attacks, in addition to the potential damage that could be created by Generic28.AULI’s yet-to-be-defined payload. Symptoms of attacks by either Generic28.AULI or PSW.SpyEye haven’t been noted as being visible, although you may be able to detect their attacks by monitoring your computer’s memory usage or other resources via the Windows Task Manager.
Since Generic28.AULI is, so far, always installed with other types of hostile software, you should avoid any attempt to delete Generic28.AULI or detect Generic28.AULI by itself.
Generic28.AULI may also need to be disabled before you can complete Generic28.AULI’s removal, since some anti-malware programs have been found to experience difficulties in removing Generic28.AULI without shutting Generic28.AULI down before their scans. SpywareRemove.com malware researchers suggest Safe Mode as the easiest way to accomplish this, although other measures up to and including booting an operating system from a removable drive are also available.
Why Tampering Down on Generic28.AULI Isn’t Something to Delay
