Q Nyx - Popup Heaven

| | Comments (0)

Here's an interesting one from China.."Q Nyx". No idea what that means, but it isn't good if you get it on your PC. Your computer won't go into meltdown or anything, but you will see a lot of popups. It's a fairly standard hijack, with a whole bunch of files dumped into your System32 Folder:

A number of security programs are mentioned in the code of one of the executables, which would seem to indicate it's going to try and tamper with them:
