According to WebSense Security Labs, Chinese hackers are using a new tool to compromise PCs and install the bot of their choice on them. The tool is probably intended for installing password stealing trojans. The tool is called “wolfteeth bot catcher” and lets the user enter an IP range to compromise by exploiting the MS08-067 vulnerability. The exploit then downloads and executes a file of the operators choosing. Cool stuff. I’m working with Heike to get a copy of this tool. When I get it, I intend to use it to install a photo-rotation screensaver with pictures of lolcatz.
