Things to know about .Fotomoto.gen
.Fotomoto.gen is a high risk development off of the original adware program. Originally discovered in April of 2008, this program was named after the Ukrainian Indy rock band, and they are used to lure you into downloading more adware. It can be safely assumed that neither the band nor their management approve of this use of their name. This version goes a few steps further than the original. First, let’s look at what you can expect from the word “go.”
This program is an adware that uses pop up advertising to sell you various products. What these products are depends largely on your browsing habits. The first thing these types of programs do once they’re downloaded is that they scan your computer for files like your browsing history, tracking cookies, bookmarks, etc., and establish a connection with a remote server. They then send your information to this location, where it gets stored in a database. Then, based on the information they get, they send you pop up advertising. You can bet also that the products they’re advertising has more adware.
Of course, this costs your computer in the way of memory and processing performance. More than that, due to the relationship between bandwidth and your memory, the communication back and forth between your computer and the remote server costs you even more in the way of performance. A particular feature that makes this program especially bad is that it resets your security settings. It shuts off your automatic updates and disables several antivirus and antispyware programs, even top quality ones like Norton Antivirus by Symantec.
Particularly affected in the way of performance are internet browsers. Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox especially tend to crash when you’re infected with this program. Probably for no small part because this parasite restarts itself every few second or so, which starts the communication and file exchange process all over again. Also, it automatically downloads more spyware onto your computer. Of course, it’s all behind the scenes and without your knowledge or consent.
The net result is that your computer starts running slower and some programs will crash. Another especially nasty feature of .Fotomoto.gen is that if you do get a spyware removal program to remove it, an incomplete removal will result in a complete reinstallation. It has also gone through a number of mutations, several hundred in fact, so many antispyware programs may not even notice it.
Considering the rate of mutation this program has, it’s obvious that you need a special kind of antispyware program. This is a particular area where SpyZooka especially shines.
