Phatbot and stealthy polymorphic Alphabot Soup
"Phatbot" is essentially an "alias" label used by some AV vendors for a Trojan and it's also a name assigned to a particular Trojan analyzed by the LURHQ Threat Intelligence Group. These Trojans - Phatbot, Polybot, Agobot Gaobot, SDBot, RandBot .... which have similar functionality and purpose, are "lumped together" by some AV Vendors into families of Trojans. Most of these Trojans can trace their roots to powerful warez Trojans that have plagued University network environments for a number of years (groundbreaking threat analysis was done Dave Dittrich at the University of Washington and others). In addition all of the "Agobot"'s should be thrown in as relatives, after all what's in a name. The variants released in later 2003 and 2004 include true Internet worm functionality enabled by Microsoft vulnerabilities associated with Ports 135, 445, and 80.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
