Today's update adds 1 new Xupiter variant that was just recently discovered. Use the built-in Check for Updates feature to download this update.

This new variant has been seen spreading via spam e-mails that ask the user to browse to a webpage (which then installs the toolbar via an ActiveX drive-by). Today's update for SpywareBlaster will prevent the install of this new variant.

Best regards,

SpywareGuard is a work in progress - I'm adding items as fast as possible to the definitions.

Bonzi Buddy isn't detected yet - I'll try to add it soon. :)
