Protect your system by continuously monitoring your computer
for potential infection and suspicious activities.

Using RUBotted

To use RUBotted, just make sure that your computer has a working Internet connection. RUBotted can use your current network settings automatically.
If a bot infects your computer, the RUBotted system tray icon will display a pop-up to alert you. RUBotted will use HouseCall to remove the botnet client and inform you of the result. You can access the console with status and log information by right-clicking the RUBotted icon in the system tray.


What It Does

The botnet masters are gaining ground. As more bots secretly take control of computers and use these infected machines in malicious activities, bot networks are becoming more resilient. The emergence of new bot families and the continued proliferation of some of the most notorious botnets highlight the need for a reliable solution against botnets.

The latest version of RUBotted features improved detection of unknown versions of bot clients, and better cleaning capabilities for infected machines.

Compatible with other antivirus products that may already be installed in user systems, RUBotted allows for seamless integration at no cost.

RUBotted also interfaces with Smart Protection Network reputation databases to help identify and block new threats. It is capable of detecting known and unknown variants of known botnet families including some of the most notorious botnets today:

  • ZBOT/ZeuS – bank information stealer
  • KOOBFACE – most successful Web 2.0 botnet
  • WALEDAC – infamous spamming bot
