Summary

Windows Defender Antivirus detects and removes this threat.
 
Win32/Vundo is a multiple-component family of malware that delivers "out of context" pop-up advertisements. Variants of the family may also download and run other files, including malware and adware.

Vundo is often installed as a browser helper object (BHO) without your consent, by other malware.

This family uses advanced defensive and stealth techniques to escape detection and to hinder removal.
