Energizer Trojan keeps going

A Trojan has been found in software associated with a USB battery recharger made by Energizer. The Energizer Duo Charger charges batteries, "via a USB port or AC wall-outlet" and its progress can be monitored by software that is downloaded from the manufacturer's website during installation. According to a report on The Register this software contains a Trojan.

Energizer has taken the model off sale and claims to be investigating further into the matter.

US-CERT has published some technical information that notes how the standard Windows firewall will protect systems, assuming that the user does not click the Unblock button when prompted.


  1. Totally off subject, but can you tell me a little more about The Designer's Desktop Manual? I'm operating with CS3 still on a MacBook Pro. Would the older version be applicable for me? Thanks.

  2. Yes, I would say so. There's a lot of useful stuff in there that works with any recent version of Adobe's creative software. There are also a lot of techniques covered that you can use with different software.
