Everytime I click on the download link, I get a page saying "This account has been suspended, Contact customer service". So I can nt review a program I can not try out. Until I can give it a try, I am holding on the review comments. But I guess this is but a review itself huh?

If you are concerned about trojans then get Little Snitch and or Netbarrier for outgoing connections. Unless this program is running in the background all the time which I doubt it is then what is the use. Get Little Snitch and know when something is trying to make a connection.

There are only about a billion ways for a program to make an outgoing commection that no local firewall program no matter how sophisticated can possibly detect. For example, it can inject a thread into Safari (or Firefox, or any other application that uses the Internet) and then make its own connections from that thread when Safari opens an outgoing connection during your normal web browsing. To the firewall, it would be as if Safari was making that connection.

Any trojan, etc., you find on your Mac (running OS X) can do no harm to your Mac...

There is just not even one documented case of a trojan that can hurt your OS X... It may well be a trojan but it can not execute on OS X, period and end of story.

Can you pass along bad stuff unknowingly to windoze users? Yes, via email attachments.

Um... "if you download a game" isn't this application always going to consider it a trojan? :)

Zebra scanner is a simple AS Studio application to trace down trojans.

Trojans, description: A Trojan refers to a program that appears as something you may think is safe, but hidden inside is usually something harmful. The lure of Trojans is that you may download a game or a picture, thinking it's harmless, but once you double-click this file the virus gets to work.

Zebra scanner is intended to search for applications, hidden behind another extension than 'app' . It checks if any of the files in the selected folder(s) has either the real extension '.app' or the file type 'APPL'. In Mac OS ≥ 10.3 the program also checks if the item is considered an executable by the OS which can be activated by double-click or otherwise.

The program is meant to be a fast and easy way to retrieve trojan viruses, disguised as an image, MP3, movie, folder etc. thus avoiding that a hidden application can be double clicked by accident and do damage to your Computer. Zebra scanner can also examine classic data.
