Thanks very much for the name of the thing. I did a
Google search (on my Linux box, of course) and found
the article on Vundo to be informative and apparently
up to date. It did say that the thing attacks the
MalwareBytes product, but it also had a reference
to a site with detailed instructions --
http://www.wikihow.com/Delete-Virtumonde
that listed several other products. At any rate, it
looks like I'll have to budget a couple of hours for
the process, so it may be a few days before I can
get around to it and report back here.
