Malware Miscellany, June 2008
- Greediest Trojan targeting banks
As we move into summer, Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banker.ohq takes the crown in this category, by targeting customers of 56 banks.
- Greediest Trojan targeting e-payment systems
Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banker.olr wins this category in June, targeting three payment systems.
- Greediest malicious program targeting payment cards
Here, naturally enough, there's another password stealing Trojan: Trojan PSW.Win32.Agent.apl has its sights sent on four payment card systems
- Stealthiest malicious program
Trojan-PSW.Win32.Delf.jj wins this month, as it's packed with eight different packers.
- Smallest malicious program
Trojan.BAT.KillFiles.hx is rather larger than last month's winner in this category but is still only 26 bytes in size. It's capable of wiping the contents of C:.
- Largest malicious program
June's winner, Trojan Banker.Win32.Bancos.mk, at 31MB in size, is by no means the largest program we've seen in this category.
- Most malicious program
Once again Agobot makes an appearance, with a modification of Backdoor.Win32.Agobot.gen victorious this month. Its payload holds no surprises: it deletes a wide range of security products both from memory and from disk.
- Most common malicious program in email traffic
This category doesn't seem to change much from month to month: our old friend, Email-Worm.Win32.Netsky.q again takes the prize, having made up 34.15% of infected mail traffic in June.
- Most common Trojan family
3295 different modifications of Trojan-GameThief.Win32.OnlineGames were detected this month.
- Most common virus/ worm family
Worm.Win32.Autorun is back after an absence last month, with 152 new modifications: not a huge number for this category.
