More on the Menace of Random Trojan dlls and Drivers ... 

We also noticed more and more downloads  of Spyware coming down on users PC without their acceptance from browsing of specific sites, in the form of random dlls in system 32 location and registry entries in various locations such as run, SSODL or shared task scheduler. Our, very own, Spyware finder tool is continously browsing Internet 24x7 and  finding spyware from such locations automatically. Our Spyware Lab thinks that it is not HoneyPot but Goldmine, it makes their day to be the first one to process just newly -born Spyware, which no one has found so far

Recently we also released Zlob patch which included new Spyware which are brought down on users PC through this Trojan, creating entries in Appdata location and random dlls in system32 . This infection showed a fake security warning page suggesting customers to buy several Defender programs. We already released patch for that.

We appreciate any feedback on our products from our valuable customers. You would also notice daily news updates on our Spyware patch releases. You will also find more detailed information on the Spyware Encyclopedia pages which can be reached either from Spyware we Remove Link or by clicking on the Spyware Detector itself after a particular Spyware is detected, by clicking on Threat Information Link right next to the name of the Threat detected.

Please continue to support this effort by reading this blog for latest information on new spyware releases. We will not rest until Spyware writers give up and let the users of PCs enjoy their computing as it was intended to be without any slowdown, without fear of losing Privacy and with no advertisements or other unwanted nuisances.
