Forget Everything You Know!

When it comes to Trojans, forget everything you know. Stupid things to believe include:

1. Trojans don’t work on dial up.

2. Trojans don’t deliver porn.

3. Trojans don’t create porn delivery networks.

4. Trojan’s don’t shut down machines.

5. Trojans don’t hide in the motherboard.

6. Trojans don’t hide in the FAT partition.

7. Trojans don’t masquerade as device drivers.

8. You should never retaliate against a Trojan because the source may be an innocent bystander.

Let’s consider point 8 first. For a Trojan to have any value and open a back door, it must contact someone. The program must be small or it can’t hide. It will only have one or two contact points or chances. So, if it calls the last machine which had a new antivirus installed, it’s worthless. If it called back the source of the infection from dial up and it’s off line, it’s worthless. If it came from a government machine or the Russian Mafia and the source became public knowledge and everybody nuked it, its worthless. Seems to me if a Trojan controlled machine has benefit, everybody wins if nobody nukes it. So everybody should say to never retaliate against a Trojan because you may target an innocent victim. (HAHAHAHA)
