    We have been receiving reports about a new variant of SpySheriff; according to users, a rather nasty strain which deletes Ad-Aware, Spybot and possibly other Anti-Spyware / Antivirus software. As yet, we have failed to obtain samples of this malware to perform an analysis upon, but are working actively with the community to get hold of these, analyze them as soon as possible, and get them added to our detection database.

    If you suspect you have a new variant of SpySheriff, please zip up any and all installer files, or files you suspect are related to this software, and submit them to us at Lavasoft Research. Please state where you believe you may have been infected, plus any additional information you believe is relevant to the problem.
