Alert reader Joe Fernandez over at the MalwareUp forum (http://malwareup.org) sent us a tip on this one. He was checking out the scripting in a rogue security product and found a little note to the guys at ESET anti-virus company (which makes ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 referred to below):
Eset, Star Wars, dot.tk and rogues ....
I just got a note from Steven Burn with the Ur I.T. Mate Group in the UK
His group found this little “message” in a script in a rogue as well:
/*hello nod32 guys; the force is strong with u, young Padawans, but u won’t defeat us; any resistance is futile;/
Blog post about it here.
Ur I.T. Mate Group is the name given to a collection of websites developed and maintained by Steven Burn.
