Fakefrag Trojan paves way for rogue defragmenter
You might have heard about rogue AV solutions and scareware, but not many people have experienced a rogue defragmenter that hides files and (indirectly) asks money to return it.
Symantec researchers warn about Fakefrag - a Trojan that moves all the files in the "All Users" folder to a temporary location and hides files in the "Current User" folder, hides icons and makes it look like they have been deleted, disables the Task Manager, and shows error messages that indicate that the hard disk might be failing.
