From CNET: June proved to be another hot month for malware with by a surge in attacks by a password-stealing bot and the return of old nemesis Conficker, according to a report released Tuesday by security software maker Sunbelt.
Designed to ferret out cached passwords and log-in credentials for banking sites, "Trojan-Spy.Win32.Zbot.gen" was the second-most prevalent piece of malware detected by Sunbelt last month, up from the No. 5 spot in May. The top spot, grabbing more than a quarter of all detections, was held by "Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT," a generic form of malware with hundreds of variations and sometimes associated with scareware and rogue security software, noted Sunbelt.
The month also marked a return engagement of Conficker, this time in the form of a variant called Downadup. Following the path of the original Conficker, the new variant jumps on a weakness in Windows Server that allows code to be executed remotely when file sharing is turned on, according to Sunbelt. This strain also takes advantage of weak administrator passwords to disable certain Windows services and anti-malware protection. CONTINUED
