December Update for Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
This update includes three new malware families: F4IRootkit, Ryknos, and IRCBot. This tool now cleans over 50 of the most prevalent malware families. This release, as in the past, is available as an interactive web-based cleaner, as a downloadable executable, as well as through Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Windows Server Update Services.
With the inclusion of rootkit cleaning of the F4IRootkit in this release, we now have cleaning in all our tools: Windows AntiSpyware beta, Windows OneCare Live beta, Windows Live Safety Center beta, and now the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. In addition to adding new malware families to the tool each month, we also make sure that families we already include are updated with signatures for new variants of that family.
