Alert level: High Detected with Windows Defender Antivirus

Also detected as: Win32.Renos (F-secure)

The Win32/Renos family automatically downloads unwanted software such as SpySheriff, SpyAxe, SpyFalcon, SpyDawn, SpywareStrike, and other similarly named programs. These programs typically present erroneous warnings claiming the system is infected with spyware and offer to remove the alleged spyware for a fee. In some cases, the programs may also cause system instability.
