Botvoice Trojan - Computerworld Article
QUOTE: The program, called the BotVoice.A Trojan, was first spotted by security vendor Panda last week. It is a Trojan horse program, which the victim must download first. But once installed, it gets nasty. The Trojan soon sets to work trying to delete everything from the victim's hard drive, while at the same time endlessly repeating an audible message, apparently designed to taunt the victim. "You have been infected. I repeat, you have been infected, and your system files have been deleted. Sorry. Have a nice day and bye-bye," the Trojan says.
It does this by using a text-reading program that is part of the Windows operating system, Panda said. Users of Windows 2003, XP, 2000, NT, ME, 98 and 95 are all at risk. Unlike a virus, BotVoice.A does not jump from computer to computer on its own, but spreads via peer-to-peer networks or storage devices such as CD-ROMs or USB (Universal Serial Bus) memory drives. The Trojan is unusual because unlike most malware written these days, it appears to be designed to perform mindless vandalism
