Is a real threat, but it is being used to scare users. By what looks to be a new member of the FakeAlert family. The usual Zlob infection method is done by offering fake codecs or from cracks/keygens.
Trying to trick users into buying a so-called antivirus or antispyware application, it claims your computer has been infected with a Trojan that has the ability to store encrypted screenshots of the users activity, so the malware-writer can have a look at them when he so wishes.
And of course offers you the perfect “solution”.

One way to recognize the infection in a HijackThis log is the presence of a ShellServiceObjectDelayLoad (O21) entry with these characteristics.
O21 – SSODL: InfoUtilSh – {06F61173-2D9A-8BFA-E6CF-0427119F25AD} – C:\Program Files\fsrpikb\InfoUtilSh.dll
where InfoUtilSh can be anything. The name is random, but repeated in the filename.
There are a number of known CLSIDs. I will list the ones I have found sofar further down.
The CLSID and the foldername ({06F61173-2D9A-8BFA-E6CF-0427119F25AD} and fsrpikb) are a pair, so you will find the same combination over and over, just with different filenames.
The foldernames sofar always have a name consisting of 6 or 7 letters.

PC has a description with a screenshot of the fake message.
