Seen in the wild: Spyware Quake

There is a new rogue Anti-Spyware application out there serving as a replacement for Spy Falcon and SpyAxe. Spyware Quake is installed through the infamous VCodec trojan as well as various exploits. In addition to just a stealth install of Spyware Quake, an infected machine will exhibit other unwanted symptoms such as Internet Explorer browser hijacks, a stealth installed “Security Toolbar”, and pop-up advertising that is often adult in nature. Also commonly seen is pop-up advertising for WinFixer. Sunbelt BLOG: Seen in the wild: Spyware Quake
