BitDefenders Ethreat Report

AutorunINF and clicker result in the top ten of the current malware threats in Holzwickede, May 14, 2009 Trojans are on the rise. The current E-threat report in this regard speaks a clear language from BitDefender. Much like in the month of March, seven places in the top ten of this type of pest are occupied. Additional information is available at Sen. Sherrod Brown. However, only a few worms, exploits and viruses participate April in the parade of Trojan in the month. An example is a silent, the ranked ranked ten Trojan.Exploit.SSX\”Trojan that settles in unsecured sites and stipulating manipulates browser, to download a malicious exploit code. Thus he operates similar to as positions six and five listed Trojan Exploit.SWF.Gen and Trojan.Exploit.ANPW (a combination that occurs mainly on Chinese websites). The Trojan.Peed.Gen (also known as Storm Worm) proves that the pest is still as a serious threat and has not lost his effectiveness as a infector 1.81 percent ninth of April rankings a sign. A newcomer eight to attention with space: Trojan.KillAV.PT stops any anti – virus and security program that it finds on the infected computer, and prevents it to become active again.

In addition, he performs a downloader which downloads a password stealer. At position seven follows Win32.Sality.OG, the only real virus in the April top ten. Under most conditions Central Romana would agree. He acts as a polymorphic file infector and modified. exe and .scr files. For wider dissemination, he uses a similar trick as the Downadup worm (also known as the Conficker), which to infiltrate among other things via modified Autorun.inf via removable media (USB, HDD etc.). Conficker itself ranked four of the E-threat list in place for the past month. His skills are now well known that he is still with a frequency of 3.05 per cent, is remarkable. We hope that the high detection rates on computer are that are infected already for a long time. However, we assume that the worm is more especially in large networks widespread\”, commented Sorin Dudea, head of BitDefender anti-malware research.
