Backdoor.Miranda heads up!
During my latest trip to www.symantec.com i came across another trojan doing the rounds.
Backdoor.Miranda allows a hacker to remotely control an infected computer. The Trojan uses an HTTP connection to post the victim's system information to a script at a Web site pre-determined by the hacker. It is written in the Borland Delphi programming language and is compressed with UPX.
So as always, fellow AO'ers, remember to update that AV s/w and keep safe!
