Atak attacks Posted by Mikko @ 15:38 GMT

A new massmailer called Atak has been found. We haven't seen too many reports so far, probably because many office workers are enjoying holidays and are not reading their email.

Atak drops itself in a file called HINT.EXE to \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 directory and employs lot of anti-debugging tricks.

It also contains this text written in k-rad elite speak...meaning "attack against Netsky, Bagle, Mydoom, Lovgate, Nachi and Blaster".
