SimpleMu exploit?

I recently suffered from some weird simpleMu exploit which loaded a harmful program onto my machine. With the program running I recieved a warnning of several registry entries being detected, my machine was forced into a reboot and reloaded with some program called Bravix running. My protection software was shut down and I was forced to load an older safe boot. The uninstall shield was removed for simpleMu and I was not able to use windows to remove it, I was lucky enough that one of the utilites I had took it off.

I am unsure as to where or how the exploit was done, I have spent some time looking over the net for anything relating to it and have discovered nothing. This may be some random program that just exploited simpleMu, or it may have been some vicious malware I picked up surfing the net. In either case I wanted to warn people that there may indeed be an exploit that takes advantage of simpleMu, if that is the case I would urge caution.


Sorry to waste your time,

Re: SimpleMu exploit?

Thank you. It is never a waste of time to warn about such things
