Kaspersky Lab removes Flashfake Removal Tool (fixed)
Posted on 12.04.2012
In response to the recent discovery of the Flashfake botnet, Kaspersky Lab has released a free Flashfake Removal Tool.

Unfortunately, Kaspersky Lab has identified an issue with the tool. In some cases it is possible that the use of the tool could result in erroneous removal of certain user settings including auto-start configurations, user configurations in browsers, and file sharing data.

The tool has been temporarily suspended. The company will release an updated version of the utility with the bug corrected.

In the event that users experienced problems due to the use of the Flashfake Removal Tool, they should contact Kaspersky support at techsupport@kaspersky.com.

UPDATE, Friday, 13 April: Kaspersky Lab has reissued its free Flashback removal tool after having fixed a bug that occasionally made the tool erroneously remove certain user settings including auto-start configurations, user configurations in browsers, and file sharing data.
