  6. […] A dangerous new virus, detected as PE_LICAT.A, is on a global rampage. The worm borrows a technique used by Conficker/DOWNAD, which downloads and executes malicious files from various web domains. Several of these domains are linked to ZeuS, and Trend Micro threat analysts have confirmed that a ZeuS variant is both the starting point and final payload of this infection chain. Trend Micro Smart Protection Network™ detects and blocks the dynamic attack. CTO Raimund Genes talks more about this protection in his video blog, How Analyzing a New Virus Can Lead to Multiple Protections. […]
