KBOT Virus

KBOT, a virus that spreads by injecting malicious code into Windows executable files, is the “first “living” virus in recent years that we have spotted in the wild.”

KBOT is able to spread through Internet-facing systems, local networks, and removable drives. Once a system is infected, the malware writes itself to Startup and the Task Scheduler, infecting all .exe files on logical drives and shared network folders in its path.
