SpyAxe, Who axed you


Stefan has spent a considerable amount of time lately here in the Anti-Spyware lab looking into SpyAxe. Downloaded and installed by Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Zlob, SpyAxe is nice enough to detect the Trojan that downloads it, but it won't disinfect it unless you pay for a SpyAxe license, $49.50 U.S. (plus a nonimal $2.95 transaction fee). I wouldn't dare pay for a licensed copy to verify that removal is actually done, but I have my doubts.

An annoyance at first, but there seems to have recently been a huge spike in the distribution of Zlob. F-Secure : News from the Lab
