    A spyware

    Hello firends

    http://www.pandasoftware.com/virus_i...?idvirus=40749

    When the user attempts to close the advertising web page, the Internet Explorer window is in fact minimized, pointing to a web page that has a PHP routine. This routine accesses certain web addresses, without user intervention, in order to send them information on the spyware creator, who receives money in exchange for the number of visits generated

    It can directly send information on the spyware creator.

    Why does it use a web page with PHP routine between this way?

    Good luck

    Im not sure I follow your question?

    Is this something that is installed without the user clicking anything?

    Hello my firend

    I think you are thinking about something like this:

    http://www.pandasoftware.com/virus_i...&idvirus=41595

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../MS03-014.mspx

    However if the user was not using Outlook Express 6.0 or Outlook 2002 in their default configurations, or Outlook 98 or 2000 in conjunction with the Outlook Email Security Update, the attacker could cause an attack to trigger automatically without the user having to click on a URL contained in an e-mail
    Of course it doesn't relate to my question.

    GOOD LUCK
