Storm Worm (aka Peacomm), a trojan spreading by e-mail through socially engineered messages with infected files attached, has evolved. Its latest variants come with integrated rootkits that hide parasite files, registry entries and even active network connections. Some antiviruses cannot detect such kind of threats, so a rootkit detection and removal program should be used.
A storm in Europe is over now. However, it’s not a problem for Storm Worm makers. They added new thrilling e-mail subjects in order to trick inexperienced users into opening malicious attachments.
New subjects include:
Russian missle shot down Chinese satellite
Russian missle shot down USA aircraft
