The following is a listing of all software known to install the Aureate
spy on your system. The Aureate spy keeps track of your Internet
activities and sends a report to Aureate every time you open your
browser. The Aureate spy places the following files on a Windows
machine. [It is not known, yet, to affect Macintosh or Linux machines.]
> The installed files are some or all of:
> adimage.dll
> advert.dll
> advpack.dll
> amcis.dll
> amcis2.dll
> amcompat.tlb
> amstream.dll
> anadsc.ocx
> anadscb.ocx
> htmdeng.exe
> ipcclient.dll
> msipcsv.exe
> tfde.dll
>
> Here is a review of the contents and
> code contained in the DLL’s that Aureate makes use of. Here are a
> few of my findings up to this point:
>
> advert.dll
> =======
>
> This DLL creates a hidden window every time you open your browser. It
> creates and sends 4 pages of information to the Aureate servers using
> port 1749 on your system, these pages include:
>
> 1. Your name as listed in the system registry ( not the name you
> installed one of the programs with )
> 2. Your IP address
> 3. The reverse DNS match of your address. ( tells them what ISP and
> area of country you are in )
> 4. A listing of ALL software that is shown in your registry as being
> installed. ( Not just the companies they work with )
> 5. This DLL sends the following information to their server on all
> URL’s you visit:
> A.) ad banners you may click on
> B.) all downloads you do showing the filename/file
> size/date/time/type of file(image, zip,executable, etc)
> C.) full time and date stamps of all your actions while
> using your
> browser
> D.) the remote dialup number you are dialing in on (taken out of
> your dialer configuration)
> E.) dialup password if saved, does not “appear” at first glance
> to send this through to them.
> 6. Contains programmers note: “Show me the money! I want to
> be Mike!”
>
>
> advpack.dll
> =========
>
> Used during the installation only to check for other needed files.
> amcis.dll
> =======
>
> This DLL modifies the following registry keys:
> 1. HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG
> 2. HKEY_DYN_DATA
> 3. HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA
> 4. HKEY_USERS
> 5. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
> 6. HKEY_CURRENT_USER
> 7. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
>
> Unregisterss oleaut32.dll from memory as provided by M$oft and
> replaces with its own calls. Switches back to M$oft’s when browser is
> closed. Creates stub processes to be started anytime your browser is
> opened.
>
>
> amcompat.tlb
> ===========
>
> This guy tracks any multimedia clips ( video/pictures/sound ) that
> you view It tracks the rating level on the video/picture/sound and
> title / location Contains references to DblClick ( still digging on
> this one! )
>
>
> amstream.dll
> ==========
>
> Setups TWO way communications between your system and theirs.
> Used to send info and receive update commands/files
> Open port 1749 for communications

Una buona soluzione è quella di installare ZoneAlarm, infatti oltre a proteggere da attacchi dall’esterno, impedisce a programmi residenti sul pc di comunicare verso l’esterno.


#3

no, il testo in questione dice che i programmi listati installano il software aureate che comprende i file listati. il software aureate (microsoft non centra) serve per comunicare ad un database centrale dati riguardo alle preferenze tra le banner incluse nel programma (bannerware) ed è una violazione dei diritti del consumatore. cancellate i file e non usate programmi bannerware

Concordo con ResEvil; questa volta microsoft non c’entra.


#5

andate qui e scaricatevi il programma che identifica eventuali file sospetti e li elimina.
piccola GRANDE utility

#6

Vediamo se ho capito bene: installando qualcuno di quei programmi in lista vengono introdotti a nostra insaputa alcuni files che fungono da “ricognitori” che,quando apriamo il broser per navigare, inviano ad un server AUREATE tutta una serie di nostri dati personali. Quindi si consiglia di rimuoverli ? Chi e’ che srutta AUREATE ? Abbiamo possibilita’ di difenderci in qualche modo ??
Saluti.


#7

la lista dei file aureate ( forse presa dall’ AntiAureateSpy program di Cokebottle… i cattivi che fanno i buoni… ) include il file advpack.dll, ma lo stesso file non viene rintracciato da optout di grc…

penso che il file in questione non sia dell’aureate in quanto altri prog non spyware lo installano per dirigere l’installazione…

concordo con ResEvil:
NON INSTALLARE PROGRAMMI BANNERWARE…

PS:
per quanto riguarda getright se si inserishe il numero di serie al momento dell’installazione, il software aureate non viene installato…


#8

grazie a mr.forever, dr.jekill e a tutti kuelli che…ci aiutanoa navigare per mari + tranquilli byby

#9

La verità sulla Aureate spy è stata scoperta in febbraio da un certo Acidburn.
Ora la Aureate ha cambiato nome: si chiama Radiate.
Se volete anche un aggiornamento sulle “trappole shareware” andate a scaricare lo zip a come.to/tommytv

Questo sito si occupa di questi spioni. C’è un programma che analizza il sistema e volendo rimuove i file:http://grc.com/optout.htm
