KB20131231 Remove Yet Another Cleaner

Image

July 2, 2014 Update: YAC's official Web site has been flagged as a Malicious domain, according to this latest VT report and this older one. Meanwhile, Webutation say that yac.mx is a suspicious page to visit. Furthermore, lots of malware fighters and/or VT members like FacundoArg voted to keep your mouse away from that site for security.

You had better thoroughly uninstall Yet Another Cleaner (aka, YAC) in your system according to this virus report from VT. Its official installer package "yet_another_cleaner.exe" (MD5, 11b73ceb2525e7d328d36a6b02f248c4) has been detected as MALWARE by AntiVir (virus name, "APPL/Elex.C") and ESET-NOD32 ("a variant of Win32/ELEX.Q"). Users also reported that they were experiencing something like installing scareware/rogueware/malware plus users got additional junkware. YAC even gave false positives to users, warning "download.com" is an unsafe website! Thus, YAC is NOT a trustable product you can keep on computer, as the mentioned Yet Another Cleaner involved malware infection, browser hijacking -- Yes, security bloggers had also posted solutions about "search.yac.mx" homepage (Note It's changed into so-called "YAC Safe Navigation").
