- Greediest Trojan targeting banks
This month, the nomination goes to Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banker.xkz, from the same family that won this category last month. This particular sample targets the users of 28 banks at once.
- Greediest Trojan targeting payment systems
September’s winner is Trojan.Win32.Agent.adtp which has its sights set on four e-payment systems simultaneously.
- Greediest Trojan targeting payment cards
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a malicious program which wins out in more than one category. Autumn has brought a surprise entrant, with Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banker.xkz making an appearance in this category as well – in addition to going after 28 banks, it also targets five different payment cards.
- Stealthiest malicious program
Autumn has brought about a change in this category – instead of the customary Hupigon, September features a modification of Backdoor.Win32.Netbus.160.e, which is packed with nine different packers.
- Smallest malicious program
September’s winner, just like August’s, is 31 bytes in size, but has a different payload – it’s a new modification of Trojan.BAT.MouseDisable.c. And its name tells you everything you need to know – this Trojan will block the mouse.
- Largest malicious program
Yet another Trojan-Banker wins the crown in this category: Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banbra.dkj weighs in at 34MB.
- Most common vulnerability on the Internet
In September, this category was taken by Exploit.Win32.PowerPlay.a – it made up 6% of all vulnerabilities identified on web pages that were used to deliver malicious code to victim machines.
- Most common malicious program on the Internet
Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Small.aacq, which won this category last month as well, still triumphs here; it’s involved in 20% of all cases, which is a pretty high number!
- Most common Trojan family
Once again, this category is taken by an old familiar: Backdoor.Win32.Hupigon.c, which came over the finish line in September with 3072 new modifications.
- Most common virus/ worm family
There’s also been no change in this category – as we move into autumn, Worm.Win32.AutoRun continues to reign, with 655 new modifications.
