Full Name:
Type: Dialer
Also Known As: strip-player StripSetup
Created By: Electronic Group
Danger Level: 3
Category Description: A program that can secretly change your dialup connection setting so that instead of calling your local internet provider, your PC calls are routed to an expensive 0900 or international phone number.
Official Description: A downloader for a premium-rate phone dialler providing access to the porn site strip-player.com.

Comment: Installed by ActiveX drive-by-download on porn-related pages from strip-player.com (which might be opened by pop-up advertising).

Installation can happen totally automatically on versions of Internet Explorer older than IE6 Service Pack 1, as a security hole is exploited to add the manufacturers, 'Electronic Group', to the list of publishers you trust, allowing them to install any software they like.

The 'StripSetup' ActiveX control can be used on any web page, by any author, to download and run any executable file. There are no security checks whatsoever.
Manual Removal: Open the System folder (in the Windows folder, 'System32' under Windows XP/2000/NT, or 'System' under Windows Me/98/95), and delete the ActiveStripSetup.dll file.

To remove the dialler itself, delete the folder 'C:\Program Files\strip-player' and any links to it on the desktop and/or Start menu.
