    Default [SOLVED] Scorpion

    Does anybody have anything on the I-worm Scorpion. It re-installs as an extension in Firefox 23 once a day and causes an annoying flash player to come up and start blasting me with b.s. ads. All I know of it is that it is supposedly produced by Ad-Peak and spreads through infected emails. I'd love to know how to get rid of it.

    The best is to post your logs at bleepingcomputer (https://www.zonealarm.com/forums/sho...an-up-Guidance). They will guide you through the steps to clean your system.

    They are experienced on these types of infections:

    Fax, thanks for the help. I apparently solved my problems with the link to ZA Malware Clean-up Guidance. I'll hold the bleepingcomputer.com link in reserve in case more problems surface.
