Vodafone and Verizon customers beware. Email virus with your name on it.

Vodafone and Verizon Wireless users have a new threat to watch out for in their inbox. A new virus claiming to be from either Vodafone or Verizon comes with a subject of “Your credit balance is over the limit”. The danger comes by way of an attached virus that the email details as an “balance checker”. Whatever you do, do not open it or run the attached program. Doing so invites in a nasty little Trojan with name of “Regrun” that hosts a nasty program flagged as “Mal/Zbot-P”.

It’s extremely important to know that the above Trojan is associated with a reported $100 million+ dollars that has already been stolen from victims’ accounts. With that said, the intentions of this Trojan are to gather login information to banking and other financial based sites. Avoiding emails that contain the message as detailed above is your best bet. Anyone get bitten yet? If so, how hard was it to get rid of? Share the details below.
