Like this ? (http://www.pcworld.com/article/190990/the_energizer_duo_trojan_what_you_need_to_know.htm l). If you are, and if you've installed the program (in Windows) to monitor the battery, now maybe a good time to uninstall it. Since, it installs a backdoor trojan on your system

wow. Atleast people running a third party firewall may get a pop up that looks abit more suspicious than windows firewall friendly notification.

"Energizer duo wants to access the internet over port 12345, Allow or Deny"?

Let me guess, Energizer paid an off-shore programmer as an afterthought and is learning why that's a bad idea. Still, you have to hand it to the programmer to get away with pulling this stunt AND most likely getting paid for it!

Either that, or they are all running Norton Anti-Virus.

And some people on here wonder why I tell them they need more than just the incoming firewall in their router... ;)
