Does PaloAlto provide any protection against this malware, either in downloading the virus, making the DNS quesries to the list of .ru domains that the FBI released on June 4th, or in the call backs that it makes?

Hello Ian,

Gameover ZeuS is a peer-to-peer botnet based on components from the earlier ZeuS trojan. PAN already has coverage for this issue with the Spyware DNS signatures. Please make sure that you have enabled DNS signatures under the Spyware tab and have action set to block.

I have seen a few instances were emails with the malicious EXE are coming through a SSL connection to Dropbox. Might want to make sure you're decrypting SSL to, but the downside is you lose the ability to use the Dropbox client.
