Trojan.Dropper/Gen

SuperAntiSpyware has just caught this trojan when Spybot, Malwarebytes, spyware terminator didnt. Same happened with this guy which got me thinking about SuperAntiSpyware and what its doing that the others arent doing and whether its kosher.

A Google says it is a legit Trojan, and Avira had a post about it a while back - TR/Dropper.Gen - Full description

SpywareWarrior recommends SUPERAntiSpyware as a tool.

It is reasonable to be concerned because the others didn't find it - that's a trick a lot of crapware uses to get you to buy their (inferior) product. In this case, it looks like it is just a bit better than the others.

yeah I keep an eye on lavasofts blog since they post warnings about false spyware programs. Thanks for the reassurance.

SAS is not really trying to sell you anything. It is free for the home user. I have used it for about two years, amazing program. I have saved a couple computers with it.

the offending program was a sidebar gadget which monitors game servers and the number of players using qstat. So I think in this case it may be safe.

I must say that Super Anti Spyware is the Best Anti Spyware Product.

While I havent tried all of them ( though Im sure you have Dinesh ) I did download it and scanned my drives... It found one tracking cookie... Ill have to test it over a longer period of time for a fair comparison ....

This could be a 'false/positive' on SuperAntispyware's part, but if you have the .exe file you should upload it to Jotti's or Virus Total VirusTotal - Free Online Virus and Malware Scan just to make sure.

The QStat program is called "qstat" on Linux/Unix and "qstat.exe" on Windows. The Windows binary can be found in "win32/qstat.exe" of the QStat ZIP file
