Crisis Trojan Makes Its Way onto Virtual Machines

Quote:
The Windows version of the Crisis Trojan is able to sneak onto VMware implementations, making it possibly the first malware to target such virtual machines. It also has found a way to spread to Windows Mobile devices.

"Many threats will terminate themselves when they find a virtual machine monitoring application, such as VMware, to avoid being analyzed, so this may be the next leap forward for malware authors," wrote Takashi Katsuki of Symantec in a blog post.
