I wrote a few scripts to manually remove these three malware programs, but can't seem to find the actual trojan to test them out. If anyone can remember where they picked up these nasty vermines, let me know.

Hi Jae Shaido!

Spyaxe.com, spysheriff.com, spystriker.com would be my best guesses. I know spyaxe.com and spysheriff.com both work because I just infected a test machine of my own with it over the weekend. :tazz:

Well... I'm not looking for the programs themselves that they produce. I've already got a copy of them. What I am looking for though is the actual trojan that infects the machine. When it gets the trojan it then silently downloads a program that runs in the background to display the pop-up by the clock stating that the machine is infected with Spyware. This is not Spyware however because it doesn't track websites visited or others email address's. It is, however, Malware because it infultrates the system with malicious code. The program itself is what I like to refer to as Ransomware. Since the deception is that in order to remove this program that has infultrated Windows, you must download a seperate program that Microsoft supposedly recommends, which is usually around $30-$50 USD. As if Microsoft would recommend a third-party program of any kind; they definitly would not.
Back to the point of my topic... I'm looking for the source of the infection, the trojan itself, the infector.

If anyone can tell me where these trojan reside, I would really appreciate it.
