A new virus is circulating through the internet that utilizes a P2P network to distribute itself and take control of infected computers to steal account information. The virus can be detected by anti-virus software but once the PC is infected the virus will disable the anti-virus and firewall software. The main objective of the virus is to send spam emails and flood websites in order to take them down. Now I’m no fan of virus software, but the technology is behind them is very high-tech. Though it trivializes the code by sending spam and taking down websites. That’s just inane and only something script-kiddies would do.
