Standalone utility available for download free of charge on Malwarecity.
BitDefender has posted a removal tool for the infamous ZBot.
While ZBot or ZeusBot focuses mainly on the online banking details that users input on financial organisations’ pages, it also monitors system information and steals additional authentication credentials. The latest variants are also able to gather the history of the visited Web sites and other data users provide online, while also capturing screenshots of their desktops. ZBot is distributed mainly via spam campaigns and Web pages which host its malicious payload, usually under the guise of a popular legitimate application.
“As a part of its ongoing efforts to inform, educate and help users worldwide in their fight against e-threats, BitDefender has created a ZBot Removal Tool. The removal tool checks users’ computers, detects and eliminates most of the ZBot variants spotted in the wild and it is available for download free of charge,” said Catalin Cosoi, head of the BitDefender Online Threats Lab.
ZBot Removal Tool can be downloaded from the Removal Tools section of www.malwarecity.com, a BitDefender initiative for the software security community and a free resource for those interested in their online security.
“As ZBot is one of the most prolific breeds of malware and new variants appear every day, we strongly suggest that computer users regularly return to our removal tool page on Malwarecity.com for additional updates of the ZBot Removal Tool. Users of the BitDefender antimalware suites are already protected by state-of-the-art defensive technology,” added Cosoi.
To make sure that your system is always safe and secured, we strongly recommend that you consider installing and using a comprehensive antimalware suite. You can download and try any BitDefender security solution for 30 days free of charge.
