    Exclamation Is balancechecker.zm9 malware?

    Not that I would ever run it... but I have been peppered with "Verizon Wireless" wanting me to run balancechecker.zm9 for several days. Figure is it just another spear phish attack, more specific to machines detected with ZoneAlarm installed.

    search shows zm9 is a ZoneAlarm extension. First ZA spear I've seen.

    searchs show no 'balancechecker.zm9' hits anywhere, including these fora.

    Claimed source id and DN frontiersmenfs89 ta slowoludu tod com tod pl (Poland) [tired of bots and scrapers like everyone else]

    Thanks.

    Hi roncalli,
    This is a trojan. See Fake Verizon 'balance-checker' is a Trojan

    Cyber-criminals have started preying on Verizon Wireless customers, sending out spam e-mail messages that say their accounts are over the limit and offering them a "balance checker" program to review their payments.

    The e-mail messages, which look like they come from Verizon Wireless, are fakes; the balance checker is actually a malicious Trojan horse program.

    "If you run the tool, obviously, your computer is toast...You get infected with a Trojan that SonicWall catches under the name Regrun....

    best regards,
    Findley
