OBroker.exe is possibly a component in Citibank's "Virtual Account Number" substitute credit card number generator. Their program "CitiVAN.exe" enables their cardholders to request a substitute credit card number linked to their real number, to use for an online purchase so the customer can avoid revealing the real card number. I deactivated the Citi Virtual Account Number program residing in the system tray (it was automatically activated during startup). OBroker.exe then dropped from the running processes list.

When I started IE8, it wanted to run but I said NO. It has disabled IE8 so it will not run. If not maleware, then it is BROKE!

It is associated with Discover Card virtual number generator. When I exit the Discover application from the toolbar, this process ends.

Short use Credit Card Numbers-Protects against theft
  Francis  
Also used for Discover cards account numbers service
  BLTaylor  
My machine runs it and I do not use Citibank. I do use Discover to generate alias (secure online) credit card numbers for online purchases. Obraker by Orbiscom runs when the Discover applet is in my Windows tray. It may be a utility program used by more than one bank.

I have Citi Bank Vitual Numbers, I think they're right about that
  Ralph
