Does Eset catch this new one ?

Recommended Posts

I was reading a review about the "Je suis Charlie" virus here hxxp://www.csoonline.com/article/2871018/malware-cybercrime/je-suis-charlie-malware-shows-attackers-agility.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=twitter


New malware piggy-backing on the viral "Je suis Charlie" slogan demonstrates the continuing evolution of malware writers, able to respond to trends quickly and with a robust distribution infrastructure.

The new malware, based on DarkComet RAT code, was spotted within 24 hours of the attack against the Charlie Hedbo satirical newspaper last week in Paris, according to researchers from Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Blue Coat Systems, Inc.

And it was clever enough to get around antivirus scanners -- according to Blue Coat, only 2 out of 53 antivirus programs were able to detect it as of Wednesday."

Does Eset Nod32 is one of this 2 AV ?

Most likely it's detected as MSIL/Injector.HFC. Unfortunately, without knowing at least the MD5 or SHA1 hash, it's impossible to confirm 100%.
