Author: Anthony LaForte
Abstract:

This report is based on analysis of two malicious executables discovered in the employee reported SPAM folder. The first executable was encrypted and contained another malicious executable within its own resource section. The hidden executable is a user-space key logger used to steal information typed into the computer. This malicious binary has a high probability of AV detection.
