(Source in description)

Apparently the latest backdoor infection Backdoor.IRCBot.Dorkbot.A spreads either via online messaging (MSN etc..) or USB devices. Its spreading is medium, and his danger as well. It was discovered on May 15th past year, additional to its size: ~118Kb...

Symptoms: Extra http traffic;
Presence of a hidden file in folder. The name of the file is random.
Presence of “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run\file name” value.

Once executed, it copies itself - The copy is hidden and the name is random..

That's all I can get.. The rest in the source.. I understood ZERO. I'm so ashamed i'm in a community where most people know the other things. :wacko:

Hi Kurt

We all started knowing nothing. One day back in the 80s I was home sick form work and decided to start learning about computers. When I got one I started typing into the screen and couldn't figure out why it wasn't there later. But I learned. Eventually I wrote a videotape cataloging system and a utility to enhance RPG playing. I've learned and now almost 30 years later I am where I am.

We all have to learn some where. I have been playing with electronics all my life but the past 2 years I got involved with malware stuff. I have met great people here in the forums.

All I can say is ask questions if you do not know and I am sure some one here will answer it for you.

I also read security blogs of the major anti virus software (ie - Trend micro, McAfee, Norton, Malwarebytes, etc.....). This give great insight to malware. At first you may not understand what they may be talking about but in time you will get the hang of it.
