    Default Anybody know if Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A is covered yet?

    Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A is apparently a new type of malware that collects logins and passwords for banking sites Firefox users visit. It's using Javascript to ID the banking sites and when it gets a hit collects your logins and passwords for a Russian server. Nasty bit of business to be sure.

    So, does anyone know if ZAISS 8's anti-virus defs cover this?

    I was concerned about this same malware, Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A. Bleepingcomputer reported this as a &quot;rare&quot; Firefox targeted trojan which steals banking info. That's enough to scare the daylights out of anyone.
    Yet when you search this, most links point to **bleep**, either directly or as pass along's of Bit defender's original security &quot;press release&quot; dating to early December 08.

    I see one mention of this on Zone Alarm's board, and that was you're question dating back a week or so.

    Old Sod, Fax, is this a hoax or a real threat?

    I just came off a battle with a vundo like problem which Malwarebytes and fixvundo took care of.
    Malwarebytes and Bleepingcomputer come up all the time from the ZA guru's as respectable resources when ZA can't do the detection or cleaning, so if Bleepingcomputer thinks this is a threat, AND it's mentioned on the Mozilla Firefox site, why is ZA so quiet on this?

    MHJessen's question is a valid one.
