The most sophisticated virus ever discovered

    SecureWorks antivirus company has published a detailed analysis of the unique SpamThru Trojan , which experts have dubbed "the most sophisticated virus in history . "

    Having got into the computer, the pest not only uses it as a node for spamming, but also takes care that its work is not interfered with by competitors. SpamThru installs Kaspersky Anti-Virus on a infected computer (a pirated distribution is downloaded from a remote server) and ensures that no other viruses penetrate the system or pretend to be resources.

    In addition, the Trojan uses AES cryptographic cipher, supports P2P protocols and generates graphic spam, where each individual letter is slightly different from the other.

    To date, the SpamThru spammer network has several thousand computers.
