Threat Details:

  • spyware

This is a commercial Spyware that is made to spy on other users in the local network. A configuration file and a server component need to be copied and started on the computers that are to be monitored. Since the monitoring is done without user notice this may impact your personal privacy.
Removal Instructions:


Important: There are more autorun entries that cannot be safely described in simple words. Please use Spybot-S&D to remove them.


Please use Windows Explorer or another file manager of your choice to locate and delete these files.
  • A file with an unknown location named "ezs.exe".
Make sure you set your file manager to display hidden and system files. If EZ-Snoop.Server uses rootkit technologies, use our RootAlyzer or our Total Commander anti-rootkit plugins.
You will have to use a global search for files without a name specified. Be extra careful, because just the name might not be enough to identify files!
