Abstract

As we see new threats arrive daily employing unique and complex capabilities, it is surprising to find a Swedish bot using a control server that was active in 2009. Generally malware authors keep changing their control servers–especially after reports about them surface–but not in this case. This network belongs to prq.se, which hosts at IP address 88.80.7.152 and is an Internet service provider.
