ZLOrigin installed malware on my laptop!

Post by Aaronthesimmer on Fri 12 May 2017, 01:21

After installing ZlOrigin and ZClient a few days ago, I noticed a lot of malware had been installed on my computer. It was mainly annoying browser related malware that affected Chrome and Microsoft Edge. One particular virus made my computer almost unusable to a point where it took around 10 minutes to open Task Manager, where I tried multiple times to close the application. 

I used the official links provided by the official website.

After uninstalling ZLOrigin, deleting ZClient and running my antivirus everything is back to normal before I installed ZLOrigin.

I STRONGLY recommend that you wait for the new updates by a trusted cracker team such as 'Reloaded'.

I didn't get any malware from downloading Zclient and Zlorigin. Maybe it is caused by something else you downloaded/installed between that time?

I also got malware from this... I'm currently running a full scan of my PC to make sure no other surprises pop up...

I've not had any issues at all, I have done a full scan after seeing this and no threats were found.

I haven't downloaded or installed anything since downloading ZLOrigin. I'm 99.9% sure that it's ZLORigin causing the issue as my antivirus scans regularly. It's not a false positive as I had put exceptions for the ZLOrigin folder and download folder before I installed it

I'll reinstall ZLOrigin again to see if it was causing the problem or not. I'll get back to you shortly.

Could be possibly from my brother using my laptop.

Before I published my finding about ZClient and ZLOrigin I checked of course for malware and/or infections.
Nothing was found, however, some people downloaded from Discord.
Discord tried to change my default browser, reason why I checked the downloaded ZLOrigin thouroughly and placed an absolutely clean version in my Manual.

So when you are downloading from my manual there is no virus or malware.
