Please report any and all bugs here or by email ( Note that using the beta will start your trial period. However, we will provide an additional 30-day trial period upon request to any beta tester who wishes to test out the final version.

What’s new in TrojanHunter 5.0?

  • Redesigned, polished user interface
  • Schedule page allows scheduling of LiveUpdate and TrojanHunter scans
  • Optional automatic cleaning of trojans found during scheduled scans
  • During a scheduled scan, TrojanHunter Scanner runs invisibly so as to not get in the user’s way. If trojans are found, however, a message box alert is displayed, and optional automatic cleaning initiated. This happens even if no user is logged in to the computer when the scan is run.
  • New file analyzer in engine ensures all files are scanned correctly according to content, no matter what extension they have
  • TrojanHunter now scans inside RARSFX archives
  • Scanning inside resources embedded in Windows PE executables, as well as numerous other scan engine improvements.

Why compound scanning is important..

Doing some housecleaning, and going through a whole bunch of malware files with the new scanner (as you do..)

This one brings a smile.. TrojanHunter now includes SFX detection among other things in the 5.0 beta, here’s an “installer”…

We detect supsicious droppers too, simply because a normal SFX should be well, normal. Lets just say I wouldn’t want to execute the above on MY system…

Generic Ecard (Worm.Zhelatin) Detection!

After some hard work, we’ve completed development on generic detection for the new Ecard trojan that is going around. This, folks, is what you get when TrojanHunter finds Ecard malware:


Notice that this is all generic detection – you could run TrojanHunter without a single ruleset entry loaded and it would still detect the Ecard trojan.
