Brief Description 

    

Seeker.O is not considered a dangerous Trojan, as its actions are just aimed at changing the Internet Explorer setup:

  • It replaces Internet Explorer’s search page with the following: http://www.quacko.com.
  • It adds this address to the browser’s Favorites folder.

It is easy to get infected with Seeker.O because it uses several means of transmission to spread: e-mail messages, computer networks, FTP file transfers, CD-ROMs, Internet downloads, floppy disks, etc.

In addition, Seeker.O adds this page to the Favorites folder with the entry Play Lotto.
