'Aurora' anyone?

|

Would love to get my hands on a copy of this. McAfee has it....

Aurora.

My understanding is Aurora describes the overall attack, comprised of a few steps:

1 - Targeted attack with links
2 - Hosts visiting the bad URLs are infected via exploit (posted online)
3 - Initial exploit drops malware via multi-stages

The malware you see in the multiple stages is probably recycled - nothing too new. If you want to setup a test or scenario using the attack code message me.
