Know Your Malware: Popper Removal


Popper is a trojan designed to display unsolicited pop-up advertisements. It also contacts a predetermined remote host to receive specific instructions. Some of these instructions allow the threat to silently download from the Internet and install additional malicious parasites. Popper automatically runs as a service on every Windows startup.
