    something weird to analyze

    ok, usually I don't pay much attention to my popups, but this time I checked one out, and it was a blank page that when I viewed the source it was running some javascript.
    <!-- Roings prompt begin -->
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript" 
    <script language="JavaScript">self.focus();</script>
    <!-- Roings prompt end --> (go at your own risk maybe)
    so as you can see from that it loads something from that install.php, so I take a look at that and this one's a little long so I guess I'll zip it, and just paste parts of it. (to see for yourself at your own risk, cause I have no idea what it does go to ) One part of it loaded a .cab file from and you can check that out I think, seems safe as it's just a dir listing. But wtflip are all those .cab files, the one it loads is That just scratches the surface, cause it loads other stuff including which I haven't even looked at yet. Anyone into analyzing this stuff care to shed some light? I think I might just reinstall soon, cause i know this isn't the half of my problems. just was curious. Attached at the bottom is the code in install.php. Thanks for any insight you can provide. Peace.

    Looks alot like spyware to me. Especially the object "IObjSafety.DemoCtl". If you search for info on this you'll find alot of HijackThis logs.

    And a .cab file is just an archive just like zip (you can 'open' it with winzip/winrar). It's MS's way of distributing plugins, patches, add-ons and what not.
