Get rid of BOO/TDss.M as it is definitely harmful regardless of the details

BOO/TDss.M is affecting computers all over the globe, but recently an outbreak has been registered in Germany. The issue of BOO/TDss.M removal has grown to one of the top discussed topics at German online IT security help points.
The infection is a bootkit as its constituents are embedded to MBR. It is a typical behavior for infections of Alureon or TDSS strain. Bundespolizei is a German audience targeting scam powered by several infections, and doubtlessly the above bootkit is one of the most efficient in this dirty business. It generates a popup titled Bundespolizei and accusing, on behalf of the abovee authority, its viewer of various sins such as adult content watching and distribution. Naturally the scam is about money as the popup viewer is expected to pay a fine through Ukash, which would be actually a reward for hackers that would provide them new incentives for developing new viruses.
The infection is flexible in its payload so that it is not necessarily engaged in the above tricky popup affair. Whatever the bootkit would do is harmful, so do not hesitate removing BOO/TDss.M by performing exhausting disinfection of your computer memory to be conducted by free scanner available here.

 Rename the remover to "explorer.exe" or try to install from Safe Mode if virus blocks download\installation
