I submitted the file to Jotti's Online Malware Scan, a site where you can upload files for analysis by 15 antivirus programs at this time. Seven of the fifteen antivirus programs on that site reported the file was malware (see full report).
The file is apparently produced by Odysseus Marketing of New Hampshire, which according to Girl Geekette dotNet has been sued by the FTC for producing adware/spyware.
FTC Suing for Spyware
Finally, the FTC has taken the law where it should go. It is now suing Odysseus Marketing of New Hampshire. Their Spyware and Adware -Clientman - is listed in Computer Associates’ Spyware Encyclopedia. With claims such as "Download music without fear," and "Don’t let the record companies win," it would end up rewriting search engine results and creating popups. By installing its own malicious code, it causes headaches for those who do not give permission for this to be done.
