wininit.ini is used by certain parasites to store essential settings of their components. These settings usually describe the malicious program's behavior, functionality and additional features.
The wininit.ini file is installed and used by keylogger EBlaster. It is also related to other parasites such as trojan GodWill, A Better Internet and Haldex. These threats can use wininit.ini for different purposes, as the file's functionality depends on a particular parasite it belongs to.
Sometimes a presence of wininit.ini does not indicate that your computer is infected. It can be an essential system file or a file installed by harmless legitimate software and therefore may not pose any threat to your privacy and the system. Although such cases are quite rare, you should thoroughly examine wininit.ini before completely deleting or leaving it in the system.
