Malicious Website / Malicious Code of the Week

Sep 8 2006 2:28AM

At the end of last week, a certain Trojan started to receive an inexplicable barrage of media coverage. Interestingly enough, this Trojan first appeared back in May of this year. We're not sure what ignited the sudden interest but we're here to hop on the bandwagon as well. In this edition of our Malicious Code of the Week we'll be taking a look at the infamous zCodec. Let's start by paying a visit to the site so we can find out what all the hubbub is about.

Note: We do not link to any malicious code directly, but it should not be too difficult to locate the sites discussed in this article. Please exercise extreme caution should you decide to visit these sites on your own.
