A Trojan and a new variant of "antispiwareguard" that NIS2009 not detect
On January 7, updated NIS2009 with full heuristic is not able to detect a trojan and other false antivirus that hides a trojan downloader. This malware is an .exe very similar to dangerous and resistant "antispywareguard" or that there are many fake antivirus and Internet whose claws fall unwary that run on their machines. I find it unbelievable that Symantec has not established a generic rule of detection for this type of trash that cybercriminals use to get money to their victims under false pretenses
Please take seriously my request, they have to improve the detection capability of Norton software. I used KIS during 2008 and I had no infection. However, the lack of effectiveness in detecting new malware NIS2009 beginning to worry.
I am responsible surfer and I know many internet traps, it is difficult to infect me but not impossible, every day they invent new ways to trick and infect. I send to SSR all the malware that is not detected for NIS2009, but I hope that Symantec greatly improve their effectiveness in detecting threats. improve detection is work to be done sooner
Two threats are sent to SSR, and the numbers of tracking are:
The first number corresponds to a trojan called "Octopus", the second number is the new equivalent of fake antivirus called "antispywareguard"
