zzbrenkzx.exe removal instructions

zzbrenkzx.exe claims to be genuine Microsoft Windows file when right-clicking the file and looking at the version info. The files states to be a “Restart Manager LUA Restart Client”.  A VirusTotal scan clearly shows that we cannot trust the version information attached to the file:

  • Avast Win32:Malware-gen
  • eSafe Win32.Trojan
  • Norman W32/Suspicious_Gen4.AJROJ
  • Fortinet W32/Gimemo.UWH!tr
  • Comodo UnclassifiedMalware
  • Antiy-AVL Trojan/Win32.Jorik.gen
  • TheHacker Trojan/Jorik.Lolbot.apq
  • Jiangmin Trojan/Jorik.enjy
  • Kaspersky Trojan.Win32.Jorik.Lolbot.apq
  • VIPRE Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT

  • GData Gen:Variant.Barys.2215
  • Microsoft DoS:Win32/SynFlood.I
  • ESET-NOD32 a variant of Win32/Injector.SOU

Pretty decent detection rate I’d say. 29 out of 46 anti-virus programs detects it. This clearly shows that the version information attached to files cannot be trusted, unless the file is digitally signed.
