Wow, who knew Internet threads (???) could be a problem? (Yes I know it’s a typo!)

All of this seemed too good to be true, so I decided to download this one-of-a-kind super-duper threat killer and save myself. At the time of this writing, the installer was 'missing-in-action'. Suffice it to say that this rogue scanner appears to have a terminal condition.

It’s currently detected as “Trojan:Win32/InternetAntivirus”.

I was able to locate a couple of SHA1 hashes for the installer:
