Analysis of a very effective bot: Coreflood Trojan...
« on: August 07, 2008, 10:48:03 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

This malware bot has been active since 2004 and according to some it is archaic, but despite it is old researchers this year found a new variant that had stolen the login data of more than 35.000 domains.  This totalled up to some 463.582 usernames & passwords, with some 8.485 logins for 29 banks, 151.000 e-mailaccounts, 3233 creditcard data, 416 accounts for online stock and just under 60.000 logins for social network sites. The botnet stole 1 GB of data every day, and the gang were especially interested for whom the computer was registered, and the name of the firm, so they knew who they were hacking.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

This is ancient. If any one gets infected by this, they probably deserve it for never having updated any
of their software.  ;D
