    whataboutadog/whataboutarabbit/doginhispen is a very nasty trojan that`s called Downloader.Agent.awf. It replaces legitimate files that are common on most computers with an infected file. Then, it moves the legitimate files to a bak or backup folder.

    Running FindAWF allows us to identify the files that are infected, as well as the backups and then restore the files.

    As to how people get infected with this trojan, that`s easy, it`s through improper security and surfing habits. It`s the same for every other infection I`ve come across.

    As to where exactly this infection is coming from, I don`t know.

    I sincerely hope you don`t have this particular malware on your system.

    Regards Howard :)
