Hacker Writes Note to Microsoft in Zlob Trojan’s Source Code

A hacker from Russia inserted a short message into a Trojan's source code. This Trojan is a variant of Win32/Zlob. The message was highlighted by a 'team' of researchers from France named malware Analysis & Diagnostic.

The team noted that the hacker wrote the message with astonishing cordiality, considering that Microsoft's security experts spend a lot of their time in thwarting the businesses of malicious code developers like those of the Zlob. The message said that it was only to say 'Hello' from the people of Russia. While describing the readers as truly good guys, it expressed surprise at Microsoft's capability to react to threats so quickly. The message finally ended with wishes for a Happy New Year and good luck.» SPAMfighter News - 1/22/2009
