Thread: Malware database

    Default Malware database

    Where can I find or search the list of malware that Anti-Virus is currently protecting against?

    I have a problem loading a web page in Firefox. Firefox help suggests the Vundo trojan could cause it. It would be a comfort to know that ZA is protecting me against it but I can't find how to do it. Any suggestions please?

    Hi!

    vundo family is one of the most common malware family. It is released multiple times a day and you can count hundred thousands of variants on the net. They are called vundo, winfixer, zlob, etc... depending on antimalware software used. So it is basically impossible to say if ZA detects or not a specific variant.

    ZA uses the Kaspersky engine which signature detection are published here.

    To check your system is clean just follow ALL steps as detailed here below:
