Summary

PWS:Win32/Ldpinch.gen is generic detection for PWS:Win32/Ldpinch, a family of password-stealing trojans. This trojan gathers private user data, such as passwords, from the host computer and sends the data to the attacker at a preset e-mail address. The Win32/Ldpinch trojans use their own Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) engine or a web-based proxy for sending the e-mail, thus copies of the sent e-mail will not appear in the affected user's e-mail client.
Manual removal is not recommended for this threat. Use  or another up-to-date scanning and removal tool to detect and remove this threat and other unwanted software from your computer.
