In addition to just a stealth install of Spyware Quake, an infected machine will exhibit other unwanted symptoms such as Internet Explorer browser hijacks, a stealth installed “Security Toolbar”, and pop-up advertising that is often adult in nature. Also commonly seen is pop-up advertising for WinFixer.
