Alert level: High
WinNT/Rustock is a component of Win32/Rustock - a multi-component family of rootkit-enabled backdoor trojans, which were historically developed to aid in the distribution of 'spam' e-mail. First discovered sometime in early 2006, Rustock has evolved to become a prevalent and pervasive threat. Recent variants appear to be associated with the incidence of rogue security programs.
