Third variant of SpywareStrike Reported...
Two readers have written in to report a possible new variant of Spyware Strike that can not be removed by either PC Tools Spyware Doctor or Aluria Spyware Eliminator. This information should be confirmed by in the next 48 hours, so hold tight if these programs don't work for you.
Update (10pm): Make that two dozen people. There is definitely a new wave of Spyware Strike infections going around. Products we know that definitely DON'T work at this point at Aluria Antispyware, AdAware, Spyware Doctor, Spybot, and MS AntiSpyware. These programs will disable most components, but the annoying alert window and system tray icon remains.
Some symptoms others have reported:
* GBDialer installed (900# dialer)
* Trojan.small installed
* Internet Explorer .WMF exploit attempted
Update (10:20pm): A few readers have managed to disable the latest version. Their methods have been added to the main Spyware Strike page.
