I was talking with someone earlier who was having computer problems, and he mentioned that he was seeing something on his monitor about “System Soap Pro”. I didn’t like the sound of it especially since he didn’t have any idea how it got on his system, so I did a search. Not a lot of info about it, but from what I’ve seen it looks like a really bad little program. A couple threads from computing.net (http://www.computing.net/security/ww...orum/6254.html and http://www.computing.net/security/ww...orum/6507.html ) had people speculating that it’s designed to grab your CC number and charge you the $79.99 registration fee after your 3 day trial is up. If you don’t want to pay, you have to either send them an email within the 3 day trial or submitting a billing ticket from their website. Further they will automatically charge you the $79.99 every year.

Now on their website at systemsoap.com, you can’t download the software without providing your CC number, but a google search for “System Soap Pro” returns a page at internetwasher.com that attempts a driveby, but at least they tell you that they are installing the software and what buttons to hit to download. Internet Washer is listed at
http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/InternetWasher.html Now a little more research shows that both domains are registered through the same company and have the same DNS. Coincidence? Also some of the people at Computing.net have reported that System Soap created folders called Internet Washer. If what these people are reporting is true, looks like a really nasty bugger.
