This looks like an Adware component. Anyone know how it is distributed?

I've recently seen wyyo137.exe and wyyo139.exe appearing in the wild. I assume it will continue to increase its version number to wyyo140.exe, wyyo141.exe, wyyo142.exe, wyyo143.exe, wyyo144.exe, wyyo145.exe, wyyo146.exe, wyyo147.exe, wyyo148.exe, wyyo149.exe, etc.

Here's a quote from Wyyo's terms and conditions, which hopefully should give you an idea what the software does:

"WYYO Desktop Search turns your browser address bar (the place where you generally type in web site addresses) into an Internet search box. Installation of WYYO Desktop overrides most pre-existing, error resolution applications (like Google Desktop or Yahoo Toolbar), so that when you input search terms or un-resolvable web site addresses, or keywords, you will be provided with responsive, sponsored and un-sponsored Internet search results via the WYYO Search service or you may be directly navigated to a brand owner's site via one of our third party partners."

from: hxxp://wyyo.com/?tmp=wyyo_terms_conditions

Does anyone know how Wyyo is distributed? Does it come bundled with some other software?

On my machine, McAfee told me I had this thing called Adware-Wyyo and said it was located in C:\ProgramData\Sukoku. I found it in my program's list as "Sokoku 1.0 build 119". I was able to uninstall it w/o a problem.
