NewMediaCodecInstaller updated again!

We have one more NewMediaCodecInstaller with us! The installer and the dropped files are very poorly detected by AVs, as of now. Here are the files dropped by NewMediaCodecInstaller.exe:
sounddrv.dll
soundplugin.dll
xvideo.dll
NewMediaCodec.ocx
main_uninstaller.exe


Once the PC is infected, we get a steady stream of pop-ups, fake virus alerts etc. It tries to download rogue software like TrustedAntivirus, SecurePCCleaner, PCPrivacyTool etc.

More information about this malware can be obtained here.

Why is this so poorly detected?
