I was looking to disable some startup daemons and apps on my Mountain Lion iMac, and I noticed that inside /Library/LaunchDaemons there is a file called cn.com.zte.PPPMonitor.plist which point to an application at /Library/Application Support/ZTE/PPPMonitord.app.

Does anybody know what this is, or at least if it's something internal, or installed by third-party applications?

    Basing on the filename, I would say it is not an application developed by Apple, or the filename would start with com.apple. – kiamlaluno Sep 28 '12 at 11:38

ZTE (Zhongxing Telecommunication Equipment Corporation) is a manufacturer of USB mobile internet access devices.

PPPMonitord.app is a companion application that belongs to such "surf stick".

Often these devices are sold by mobile carriers such as Vodafone, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, etcetera.
