I feel bitter about BetterSurf


the BetterSurf Firefox extension … is malware. How it get’s onto your machine is still a mystery.

If you do run it, this is what happens: It starts servers listening on It steals private information from all local Internet browsers

But this is not the frightening part. There are several other things it does to your PC, including a TASK it schedules to run called AmiUpdXP, which you can find and delete from c:\windows\tasks\AmiUpdXp.job on windows 7.

Other things I have found: A folder is created in your appdata/local called SwvUpdater which is referenced by the Task to run Updater.exe – the frightening part, since it will be able to download and execute any future malware/virus/worm. Server data goes to: hamonetizer.com Update downloads from: hxxp://www.helpfuldownload.com/update.php (borked it so it doesn’t create clickable link)
