Iron Storm

Overview

Iron Storm is a program developed by Anuman. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 49 files. In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 77% of users of Iron Storm come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
