What is downloader small?

Downloader.small is malware first identified about a year ago. It appears that a new variant has surfaced around 06 Jun-04. Those affected are getting error messages pointing to MSlib32.dll. Check your system for "hijackware": Dealing with Hijackware http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/unwanted.htm http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/Darnit.htm http://aumha.org/a/parasite.htm CoolWebSearch Chronicles http://www.merijn.org/cwschronicles.html Important: You *must* seek updates for Ad-Aware, Spybot, etc., before each and every use, even "right out of the box". But even they can't catch everything, 24/7. When all else fails, HijackThis (http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip) is the preferred tool to use. It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware. **Post your files to http://forums.spywareinfo.com/ or http://forum.aumha.org/viewforum.php?f=30 for expert analysis, not here.** [Alternate download pages for many of the above tools may be found at http://aumha.org/a/parasite.htm.] Also update your virus definitions and then run a full system scan. From now on, do both daily. So How Did I Get Infected Anyway? http://boards.cexx.org/viewtopic.php?t=957 NB: If you have ever downloaded HijackThis or CWShredder, it is urgent that you upgrade to the latest versions before using them again. Due to a new variant of the CWS Trojan, using either HijackThis or CWShredder on an infected Win98 or WinME computer may lead to severe damage to that computer. You must update to the very newest versions of these programs before using either of them again, and you should get a new copy of CWShredder before each and every use.

It's going by DOWNLOADER.SMALL.KL anything I have found all end in numbers. I'm hoping I can use one of the existing fixes out there for the others.
