Gen: Heur.Krypt. 24 (also known under the name Worm.P2P.Palveo.AT) interrupts the exploit parade and is ranked 7th in the BitDefender top 10. In April, he is responsible for 2.38% of all global virus infections. The pest spreads via removable media, Instant Messenger, or peer-to-peer platforms. He injects his malicious code into the explorer.exe file so to camouflage and to remain undetected for the PC user. The top 10 decides the famous Trojan Autorun.AET, which thus further slip in the rankings, even though he easily gains compared to the previous month in percentage points (2.05%).
He belongs to the same family as the leader of the current top 10. More information under:.
