Spam Spreading ZBot Masquerades as Outlook Update


Essential Member

Spam masquerading as a Microsoft Outlook security and stability update actually infects computers with ZBot, a Trojan horse program that steals sensitive information. The malware contains a list of financial institution and social networking sites; if users visit any of these sites on infected machines, the malware steals login and credit card information and sends it back to a server controlled by the attacker. Earlier variants of ZBot infected computers through drive-by downloads.

that is why i don't use m$ peripheral software like outlook, ie, media player and others. besides, there are much better programs out there. their op sys's are the best options, but some of the crap that they load them with are ridiculous. so i just get rid of them immediately.
