Threat Details:

Categories:

Description:
This hijacker installs an IE toolbar without user consent and redirects the start page to its own website. At the same time it asks the user again and again to install the korean character set. In addition to this it installs numerous files into the System32 folder.
Removal Instructions:

Autorun:

Please use Spybot-S&D, RunAlyzer or msconfig.exe to remove the following autorun entries.
  • Entries named "TbWinUpdate" and pointing to "<$SYSDIR>\updateex1.exe".

Installed Software List:

You can try to uninstall products with the names listed below; for items identified by other properties or to avoid malware getting active again on uninstallation, use Spybot-S&D or RunAlyzer to locate and get rid of these entries.
  • Products that have a key or property named "마이툴바마이툴바".

Files:

Please use Windows Explorer or another file manager of your choice to locate and delete these files.
  • The file at "<$SYSDIR>\tbmytoolbar12.dll".
  • The file at "<$SYSDIR>\updateex1.exe".
  • A file with an unknown location named "tbupdate.dll".
  • A file with an unknown location named "tbupexe.exe".
  • A file with an unknown location named "btn_search_out_12.bmp".
