I've searched here, Google, Zone Labs, Computer Associates, Zone Labs forum and cannot find any information about an executable file mbuddy.exe, as well as, apparently, executable files GLBB*.tmp.

Considering that properties show it as being in Program Files\ZoneLabs\Zone Alarm\Mailfronteer, it might be connected to email spam killer, Mailfronteer and be legitimate. But it might not. Because when I ask for more information, Zone Alarm says there is no information available and there is no digital signature, company id, nothing. The alerts just started coming up 2 days ago.

It appears to be a part of Zone Alarm, that others have been having problems with:

It is. I posted there (zasuiteuser), and having gotten no reply, asked Zone Labs Support. They did answer, see http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/board/m...e.id=7266#M7266 if interested in what Zone Labs had to say. You'd think they'd give us some guidance at installation time :thumbsup: instead of asking questions or blocking their own programs, and that, believe me, included ZoneLabs Client :flowers:

BTW, ZA 6.067 has no installation problems that I could see (once you sift through the undocumented, unenforced, MANDATORY CLEAN INSTALL), works like a charm and seems to keep things clean. Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware report clean computer. The OS firewall looks good, and spyware section look good so far. Spybot teatimer (which I should probably now disable, not sure) and ZA caught something nasty coming through at the same time. I don't yet know what it was - posted a question here - but no answer so far (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic31106.html). ZA did have a log entry for this one, I did not see it when I posted that subject here.
