Malware increasingly uses peer-to-peer communications, researchers say

Quote:
The number of malware samples that use P-to-P (peer-to-peer) communications has increased fivefold during the past 12 months, according to researchers from security firm Damballa.

The largest contributors to this increase are advanced threats like ZeroAccess, Zeus version 3, and TDL4, said Stephen Newman, vice president of products at Damballa. However, there are also other malware families that adopted P-to-P as a command-and-control (C&C) channel recently, he said.
