Adware Report: "Spyfalcon" is the latest SpywareStrike/SpyAxe variant

At least two new variants of SpywareStrike (SpyAxe) have been discovered, both making use of the same annoying popup alerts seen in previous versions.

In the first variant, when the user clicks on the alert they are redirected to one of two fake anti-spyware review sites. These sites predictably recommend SpywareStrike as the top choice.

The second program works in an almost identical fashion to SpywareStrike and SpyAxe, but redirects the user to a new website at Purchasing the software from this site will install various helper malware programs that the creators can use to continue infecting your computer in the future. Your credit card data will also be stolen as well.
