Ramnit Malware

30. September 2013 10:55 by CA in Malware

The Ramnit worm appeared in 2010. Within a year more than eight million PCs were infected worldwide. Initially the malware was just file infector spread by removable drives. Later it became better known for stealing user data via browser injection, targeting banking or game users.


Ramnit is still prevalent and old domains are regularly updated. Some of the domains have already been “sinkholed” (redirected to communicate only with a controlled server and not with its malicious developers) by other security researchers.
