    Trojan replaces Adobe Reader update files

    StevenSeydell

      There is a trojan circulating that masquarades itself as Adobe Reader Update.    Please see: http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/security-bytes/new-trojan-masquerades-as-adobe-u pdate/

       

      I recently began to have Adobe Reader Updater ask to download updates every week.    I believe I was infected by this trojan.   All four of the files in

      C:\Program Files\Common  Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0 were replaced with versions dated 03/24/2010.   I  recently un-installed and re-installed the latest version of Adobe  Reader and the dates on these files are now 12/11/2009.

       

      A couple of days ago I ran SuperAntiSpyware and it noticed I was infected by a Trojan.   I'm not sure if it was for this problem or not.   The bogus files mentioned above were still on my machine after SuperAntiSpyware cleaned my machine.
