Nu intelegeam de ce ieri majoritatea calculatoarelor au gasit acest adware si l-au bagat in carantina… deh, defintiile sunt facute de Microsoft 🙂 Summary-ul de aici zice cam tot si destul de clar. Ma bucur macar ca au zis si nu au stat pititi in colt.

Adware:Win32/Hotbar displays a dynamic toolbar and targeted pop-up ads based on its monitoring of web-browsing activity. Adware:Win32/Hotbar installs a browser toolbar that works in Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8 and Firefox 3.6 and 4.0. The tool is a multi-component adware program designed to monitor user’s online browsing behavior to deliver targeted advertising. It also installs other adware components related to Win32/ClickPotato and Win32/ShopperReports. Hotbar also installs graphical skins for Internet Explorer, Outlook, and Outlook Express. It may collect user-related information and may silently download and run updates or other code from its servers.

On Jul 21, 2011 05:35 AM UTC, an update caused a temporary file related to the next Microsoft definition update to be incorrectly detected as Adware:Win32/Hotbar. At 08:51 PM UTC, Microsoft released a new signature to address the issue. Signature versions and higher include this fix.
