Journal entry – 10/11/2007
Odd virus (genuine parasitic, not generic malware). Quick to infect and spread via network shares and USBs.
Some standard social engineering tricks employed, eg folder icon, long, tempting filenames,
hmmm, EXE-like (what is that “x”?) extension for host,
But bizarre! Virus creates comprehensive log of infection activities (c:\1.txt).
Curious. Hiding or not hiding?
Perhaps the virus writer is saying “Find me and I shall reveal all”. How very arrogant!
