Anyone know anything about this spyware (HKTL_BRUTFORCE.A)? What does it do? Where did it come from? I have Trend Micro and I did a info search. Trend Micro says it's a Hacking Tool, but Harmless-Low Risk. How can something be a hacking tool and be low risk at the same time???

I keep seeing this on my computer when I do a spyware scan. I keep on removing it, but it installs itself a few days later (maybe from the internet, I don't know). Kind of like a internet cookie.

Your insight is greatly appreciated!

Have you tried running a spyware scan from safemode? That spyware might still be running in memory while you scan so it infests itself again after you scan. When your in safemode it won't be running so you can remove it w/o it infesting again imediatly.
