Raze Spyware installs fake keylogger

For the past week, our Spyware Research team has been observing Raze Spyware being silently installed without user consent through various exploits. Raze Spyware is already a long time member of Eric Howes Rouge Anti Spyware products list. Dubious installation methods are a common practice for these Rouge Anti Spyware applications. To make matters worse, we have also found a fake keylogger being installed alongside of Raze Spyware! The program then alerts the user that they are infected with the "keylogger".

What is even more compelling was a transmission from the infected machine to Pills-Catalog.net that revealed a bot-net controller. Sunbelt BLOG: Raze Spyware installs fake keylogger
