Zebra scanner is a simple AS Studio application to trace down trojans. 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.
Zebra scanner aims to be a fast and easy way to retrieve trojan viruses, disguised as an image, movie, MP3, folder etc. This way you can avoid a hidden application to be double clicked by accident and do damage to your Computer. Zebra scanner can also examine classic data.
