Russian botnet tries to kill rival botnet


botnetThis is so frustrating…how are we supposed to destroy the humans when we just keep fighting each other?

….er, they…how are they supposed to destroy the humans?

An upstart Trojan horse program has decided to take on its much-larger rival by stealing data and then removing the malicious program from infected computers.

Security researchers say that the relatively unknown Spy Eye toolkit added this functionality just a few days ago in a bid to displace its larger rival, known as Zeus.

The feature, called “Kill Zeus,” apparently removes the Zeus software from the victim’s PC, giving Spy Eye exclusive access to usernames and passwords.
