Kaspersky Finds a Multi-purpose Rootkit Threat for Windows and Mac OS X

Written on June 02, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Kaspersky Labs warns users that a multi-purpose rootkit can bring Rogue AV or fake antivirus on Windows or Mac OS X systems.

Kaspersky Lab warned users about a multi-purpose rootkit that threatens 32-bit and 64-bit Windows systems. There is also a variant that targets Mac OS X. Kaspersky added that the 64-bit rootkit uses a special digital signature for software developers. It is disseminated through a downloader, which installs other malware.

The rootkit prevents users to install or run an antivirus, and protects itself effectively by intercepting and monitoring system activities. This brings the PC at risk to attacks, while the downloader obtains and runs malicious software — including the Rogue AV or fake antivirus for Mac OS X. Known as Hoax.OSX.Defma.f, the fake antivirus is one of the emerging threats for Mac OS X which is being targeted by cyber criminals.

Rumor has it. The much awaited Windows Phone 7 will set foot on Europe on October 21. This piece of information was tipped offby the sources close to Microsoft.

In addtion, there is also a report that says Microsoft will boast the new phone at a New York City event this October 11. Just then Microsoft will have partnership with a popular London-based radio station to promote the phone in UK.

Are these rumors true? Only time will time.
