Once again about SpyAxe and SpySheriff

Last week, the overall rate of SpyAxe and SpySheriff infections finally fell off and almost stopped last weekend. However, parasites seem to be coming back this week. According to our statistics, search queries with SpyAxe and SpySheriff keywords are back at the top. Related reviews and removal instructions are also the most visited ones. This makes us think that computers of prior SpyAxe and SpySheriff victims werenít properly cleaned up and some remaining parasite components (probably browser hijackers and malicious plug-ins) are still reinstalling these threats. We also believe that a vast part of our visitors didnít apply the most recent Microsoft Internet Explorer patches. Some of these patches seal the security holes used by SpyAxe and SpySheriff distributors to secretly install parasites to user computers. Spyware news
