Taking a look at McAfee's Blog, I've seen a post talking about an old "friend" of us: the virus Virutas, and I have realized that I hadn't linked the latest articles we published in the Virus Bulletin Magazine.
The first one, Beyond Virtu(e) and Evil, written by Mario and Victor, analyses the virus Virutas in depth. It was published in the May edition of the Virus Bulletin.
The second one, The Life Cycle of Bots, was published in the number of September 2007. This article, which was written by me, goes through the whole life cycle of bots, where we can see how some bots have almost a life of their own.
