How do all these companies know about this? How do they know what it does already before it gets released? Who or what is releasing this?

The source of this particular item is Trend Micro and like a lot of the anti virus companies, they are constanhtly researching to keep up with this. You have to remember this is not being generated by casual hackers. This is being generated by hard core criminals in Eastern Europe & Asia. They only want to make money from this.
