Abstract

Symantec has become aware of a new Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) crimeware bot known as "Zemra" and detected by Symantec as Backdoor.Zemra. Lately, this threat has been observed performing denial-of-service attacks against organizations with the purpose of extortion. Zemra first appeared on underground forums in May 2012 at a cost of €100.
