Welcome Kraken

According to Dambala researchers speaking at the RSA 2008 conference, a new bigger-and-better-than-Storm called Kraken has over 400,000.- machines under its control.

Only 20% of AV products can detect it, and it appears to be very polymorphic and uses obfuscation. The delivery / infection mechanism is a "picture" file with a .exe extension which is not shown.


With the constant increase in malware code out there, how long before current AV mechanisms break?
