Lately it seems, we’re seeing more and more specialty malware removal tools, each one specially designed to eliminate a specific malware threat. Or, in some cases, a specific class of malware. In fact, we’ve covered several of these tools in the last week or so.

The infamous ZBot, aka Zeus, ZeusBot or WSNPoem, can be one of the most frustrating Trojans to eradicate from a system, and recognizing this, BitDefender has developed and released, a free removal tool designed specifically to deal with this threat.
Since ZBot is one of the most prolific breeds of malware, and new variants appear every day, if you suspect that you are infected by this scourge, be sure to download the latest version of the ZBot Removal Tool.
