    Red face Secunia Zombie?

    I tried downloading the latest secunia psi program to update secunia, as of July 26, 2010, but Zone Alarm Extreme Security scanned it and called the file a Zombie program. Why?

    I look forward to hearing from someone.

    Thanks,

    It sounds like your Computer may be infected with Malware, or maybe the "secunia v 1.5.0.2" may be corrupted or a fake infected file if you did not Download if directly from

    http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal


    Here is the Recomended Malware Clean-up Guidance:

    NOTE: the steps below works only if you are on the latest versions of ZA (version 9.1.008 or later). If you are not, please update.

    Try to perform a full Antivirus/Antispyware scan but in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING.

    1. Set ZA Antivirus/antispyware to "Super Scan" under the advanced options of the ZA antivirus/antispyware tab (scan modes);
    2. Reboot in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING;
    3. Manual run ZA (ZA firewall will be OFF but Antivirus/Antispyware will be functional);
    4. Run a full ZA AV/AS scan;
    5. Reboot in Normal Mode
    6. Set ZA Antivirus/Antispyware back to default Quick scan

    How to start in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING

    If the above fails try to clean your system with:

    A. Download update and scan with MBAM
    WARNING: Some malware will block the download of this software, rename the installer to a random name before saving and running (you can change the .exe into a .com)

    B. Use the superantispyware online cleaning tool --> Here or download, update and scan with superantispyware FREE
    WARNING: Some malware will block the download of this software, rename the installer to a random name before saving and running.

    C. Download, update and scan with Emsisoft Emergency Kit --> HERE

    Still Problems? Try the bootable CD fromDrWeb

    For a final check that your PC is clean run Hitman Pro cloud scanning (the scanner is free not the cleaning)

    if ALL the above fails please post your Hijackthis log to Bleepingcomputer or SpywareHammer

    Once you have cleaned the system please remember to purge the windows system restore points. You may be reinfected otherwise.
    - Disable system restore (How to disable windows SYSTEM RESTORE);
    - Reboot the PC
    - Re-ensable system restore

    If you downloaded from here http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal

    then it's probably a false positive
