SpywareQuake, newest rogue, replacing SpyFalcon and SpyAxe


Since I first heard about SpywareQuake, late yesterday afternoon, less than 24 hours ago, I've seen dozens of complaints about it already. SpywareQuake is being installed without notice or consent, hijacks the desktop and pops up a warning from the system tray that the machine is infected with spyware.

It scans and reports that it found spyware in the machine and then demands payment to remove the so-called spyware. SpywareQuake - newest rogue, replacing SpyFalcon and SpyAxe | Spyware Confidential | ZDNet.com
