Hi again, I will get to your followup post shortly. Just saw this one and it caught my eye
Aurora is basically an advertising company. I'm not exactly sure how it got into a user's system, but any of these are good guesses:
- the user went on to a site which executed some kind of malicious script
- the user installed a program bundled with it
- clicked on a malware related popup
There could be other reasons also, but those come to mind now. If you really want to know how it got into a system, try shooting a PM to Metallica. He usually test out these things and if anyone should know, he probably does
Aurora popped up (no pun intended
) not too long ago. I think it happened around early May (last month). The creators of this had some other malware before this one if I'm correct. So what we recommend to everyone is to stay away from their so-called uninstallers.
You will see two main files with Aurora - nail.exe and svcproc.exe Then there are also other random files. Probably not like a virus. This thing just annoys you by having popups at your screen.
If you want, you can join GeekU (see Malware Forum for link) and you will learn more about hijackings and the like.
