The "Clot Factor" is a measure of how much a pest "gums up" a machine by adding registry entries, files, and directories. As more objects are placed in a machine, manual removal becomes more difficult and more error-prone.
Countries Affected:
In the past three months, we have received reports of Alset Network in Brazil, Canada, Italy, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, United States.
