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).

Adware is a type of advertising display software that delivers advertising content potentially in a manner or context that may be unexpected and unwanted by users. Many adware applications also perform tracking functions, and therefore may also be categorized as tracking technologies. Some consumers may want to remove adware if they object to such tracking, do not wish to see the advertising caused by the program, or are frustrated by its effects on system performance.
