Sykipot Trojan takes advantage of Adobe Reader zero-day flaw

AlienVault Labs researchers have unearthed a piece of malware that takes advantage of the recently discovered zero-day Adobe Reader flaw used for attacking defense contractors.

The malware in question is the Sykipot Trojan, which has been found abusing various zero-day vulnerabilities in the past.

According to the researchers, the attackers misuse the flaw to make the target computer download the malware, which then searches for outlook, iexplore or firefox in the list of running processes. Once it has found them, it injects DLL files into them
