Srizbi detection added

February 11, 2009
Microsoft has added detection for the infectious Srizbi malware family to its Software Removal Tool, released Tuesday with the company's monthly patches. Srizbi is a trojan downloader or rootkit that propagates through malicious emails. If recipients fall victim, their machines become part of a botnet, whose chief goal is to deliver spam. In October, Microsoft added similar detection for the Rustock bot malware. — DK
