I wanted to see if anyonw knew what the CWS virus does. Does it try to get personal info, credit cards, passwords or is it there to annoy the F out of you?

Well, from my understanding, CWS (the "organisation") pay their affiliates for each person the affiliate manages to direct to the CWS search engine.

That's a bit of background, but it might be that some affiliates have written variants of the trojan to redirect to CWS so they make money.

Perhaps, that's my theory anyway (which means it's probably about as right as a liar's convention speech)
