Welcome to the ZeuS Tracker
https://zeustracker.abuse.ch/

I got this from that link:
http://i55.tinypic.com/2e2o4f5.jpg Ok...this virus gets me paranoid. :-X

So it can basicly get my passwords for online-services? And hard to detect aswell?
nothing to worry about. if you enter with opera there is a sertificate popup you need to click
i had a link explaining why this is but now i cant find it again....

WARNING: this website have list`s of URL that goes direct to malware, do not click any links it may infect you

@ Tanya,

Please edit your post and change your posted link to from http to hXXp so no one can use it as a link.  Use the "Modify" button in the post screen.  Thank you.

@ Pondus,

Thank you for your input while I was away.   :)

Essexboy added to the Worms and Virus thread regarding this issue that this is a ZA "scareware," as I pointed out in the beginning of this thread and found this: http://forums.zonealarm.com/showthread.php?s=1fb514bedc25e3f8fa2602e9d64a40ed&t=75332.  All users of ZA should also be looking at their forum as well.

Hi, I just linked to a picture on tinypic. It's Pondus' link that can be a bit funny.

Added code-tags to my original post tho. :)

@ tanya,

Thanks for editing.  BTW, I was not ignoring your PM's, but I do not provide private IM/PM support.  All support is to be done in the forum.  I hope you understand.  Thank you.  :)

Yeah, posted in the general forums. It's probably nothing, but thanks.

I'm too PC-stupid to know what I should add there, but I can fish something up from DxDiag if I just remmebered how...

This?


 Operating System: Windows XP Professional
 System Manufacturer: NVIDIA
       System Model: AWRDACPI
               BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
          Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+,  MMX,  3DNow, ~2.2GHz

Just look at some of the other signatures in the posts to get an idea, basically they give a little information on your system, OS, CPU, RAM, avast version and what security application you are using, etc.

Use a text editor like notepad jot it down all on one line and then copy and paste it into your Profile.

Click the Profile button at the top of each page, from the new page, select the Forum Profile Information, now scroll down to the Signature: box and paste your information into that.

The truth :

http://www.ghacks.net/2010/09/18/zonealarm-global-virus-alert-about-zeus-zbot-aoaq-scareware-at-its-best/  8)

nmb

I agree, http://ethicsgradient.net/2010/09/17/zone-alarm-zeus-zbot-aoaq-scareware/ this is only one of may results from google, or bing, or yahoo.
It is a regretful tactic from ZA but what can you do about it? UNINSTALL THEIR SOFTWARE.

If this http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en-us/cdn/inclient/virus-alert.htm?source=InClient+Message&medium=ZoneAlarm+Firewall&term=get+protection+link&cid=C300013 is not misleading publicity I don't know what is. Quote from the page "ZeuS is rarely detected by antivirus because it changes form rapidly." hahahahahaha. They're so funny.

To the OP, Avast! probably can detect the virus, that's probably why SafeSurf suggested you do a full scan to make sure you're NOT infected.

Nice how in the second link you gave, they selectively reported some AVs not detecting it in virustotal, yet didn't give the link. Not to mention they said avast 4.8 didn't detect it no mention of avast 5.0677, so it makes me wonder why they selectively chose to mention avast 4.8.

It is nice that they also use virustotal for a reference, yet they don't participate in the project, I wonder why that is.

Bye bye, ZoneAlarm.  With such "marketing" practices as this, it was nice knowing you.  I'll promptly be looking for another firewall, thank you very much.  And from the looks of their forum, I'm not alone...
