Trojan horse infection in Energizer Duo USB Chargers


Poor Energizer Bunny. PCs can be infected by this charger. Have one? Follow the link below to find out how to get rid of the trojan.

It would appear as if Energizer has found themselves in between a rock and a hard place. The famous battery maker’s Duo charger software infects an end user’s computer with a Trojan Horse malware infection, granting hackers full access to your computer, according to the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT).

When the software is installed on a user’s computer, it creates a malevolent file called “arucer.dll,” which will actually listen for remote commands on TCP port 7777. The file is capable of downloading executable files, transmit pilfered information, or even modify your computer’s registry files.
