This has been found to be not only a browser hijacker and popup creator, but also mines personal information and sends it to a server. The server has been found to contain bank logins and all types of personal information.

Trend Micro have a removal/test tool which is free to download at the following address. http://www.trendmicro.com/cwshredder/

So if your homepage keeps changing, or you get lots of popups, then you may be infected and any information on your computer is probably compromised.
