Trojan.Zlob.G - What is it?

Post by Doctor Inferno on 7th December 2008, 1:21 pm

I have seen many topics being posted on GeekPolice relating to the removal of Trojan.Zlob.G. So I thought that you guys may be curious about what it does etc.




This malware will trick you into installing Perfect Defender 2009 by asking you to download and activate installation. If you are infected with Perfect Defender 2009, you can find the malware removal guide here.

Trojan.Zlob.G is a Trojan horse that may download and execute remote files and redirect the Internet Explorer home page and search page.

Nope it isn't. The above screenshot shows a fake alert.
