Symantec: Storm worm changes course

The Storm worm has evolved again, researchers from Symantec claim. To streamline the worm and make it more stable, the malware authors have shed key functionalities in the malicious code, said the researchers.

The worm no longer infects other legitimate drivers on the system, instead relying on its own proprietary components to "do its dirty work". It also no longer injects itself into processes such as Explorer.exe, according to a blog post by Symantec security researcher Thomas Parsons. Symantec: Storm worm changes tack - ZDNet UK
