Nazario has detected an encrypted script function named "makemelaugh" that downloads a Trojan to ensnare banking details and a Paris Hilton Flash animation that fixes a device rendering the computer a botnet component.
NeoSploit, the recent malware Nazario's encountered among viruses can convey a minimum of seven different malwares to affect a computer, chosen according to that computer's flaws.
The jumbled code can be deciphered very easily as it uses simple Base64 encryption for camouflage, instead of real encoding, Nazario stated. He recommended SpiderMonkey, NJS, and Rhino as devices to probe script code. Flash files can be examined using software named Flasm.
