36 New Rogue Clones

Today at Lavasoft, we discovered a number of new clones from the XpAntispyware2010 family of rogue security software. The unique aspect of this family is the ability to randomly change its name. Lavasoft Malware Labs found 36 different names on three operating systems (Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7).
