Comodo Antivirus Labs has identified a new and extremely dangerous variant of the Zeus banking Trojan. Hackers use Zeus to launch attacks that obtain the login credentials of visitors to online banking sites and commit financial fraud. The significance of this variant is the combination of a legitimate digital signature, rootkit and malware component. Malware with a valid digital signature is an extremely dangerous situation.
But does Comodo not trust digitally signed files, if so how will it protect the end user? As this file is using a stolen Windows signed file, should I untick the trust applications signed by trusted vendors?

“I sure hope this is not another wolf cry like before when they claim that they found a new type of malware and it was debunked by other security software vendors.”
