GameOver Taken Down
As numerous news outlets have reported, a major botnet designed to distribute and control malware known as Gameover Zeus, Zeus, or Zbot has been temporarily taken off-line. The infected victim machines were used in a widespread email spam campaign targeting the Financial Services industry and other large enterprises. Many victims have suffered stolen banking credentials and ransom attempts at the hands of the CryptoLocker based malware. The cyber criminals will most likely regain control of the servers, leaving a small window of opportunity to repair infected systems.
Dunbar Cybersecurity partners with Sophos, who has a free virus removal tool compatible with Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.
We recommend that you take action and fix systems as soon as possible to find out how to get rid of ZeuS and for CryptoLocker help.
