What is ShifterPE.B and Why Is It Dangerous
Very little is known about ShifterPE.B except that it is a browser plugin that monitors your browsing activities and reports them to a home server. This server is possibly in Germany. Germany is the 3rd-largest origin for spyware, adware, viruses, and other malicious programs. Only Russia and China rank above it in this category.
ShifterPE.B is an auto-running program that will download itself into the Run or RunOnce directories. This means that the program can start itself any time you start Windows—without your permission. It will run as a background process, eating up processor speed and other system resources while it collects your information.
It may also install files in your Win32 directory, making it dangerous to delete by hand.
