New Virus Threat Borrows Update Technique from Conficker
Security researchers from Trend Micro warn of a new file infector, which uses an update technique similar to the Conficker worm and is able to download additional malware.
Dubbed PE_LICAT.A, the malware is a traditional virus, in the sense that it spreads by appending malicious code to legit files found on the infected system.
In LICAT's case, the targeted file types are EXE, DLL and HTML and the Trend Micro researchers explain that every time one of the infected files gets executed, the rogue code generates an unique URL and attempts to contact it.
