Hi All,

has anyone seen (for want of a better term) the Yay Malware.  We are seeing a
small window with the word "yay" in it appear on the desktop with a lot of
outgoing traffic.  A search on Google cites quite a few people seeing this in
the last 24 hours but no resolution.

We have tried to remove it with:

Symantec AV
Spybot S&D

Seems like it may be very new and the AV vendors have not caught on yet....

If anyone has seen it and mitigated it I would be interested to hear.

Hi Tim,

Have you forwarded a copy of the binary to VirusTotal?
