Gromozon is a vicious piece of malware which installs on a user’s PC and does almost every crafty trick available to avoid detection and removal, including creating its own user account, using rootkit technology, renaming its files, and a whole host of other nasty things. And it’s certainly popping up on the radar out there in the security community.
But now these Gromozon jerks have gone a step further — making the program itself seem like it’s authored by someone else — a legitimate security researcher.
Of all things, the authors of this malware have inserted code in Gromozon which implicates Marco Giuliani of authoring it! Marco is a perfectly upstanding security researcher who, in fact, created a Gromozon removal tool for PrevX.
It’s absolutely incredible. Marco has the whole story here.
