Chandra Prakesh, our Antivirus Lab Manager, presented a paper at AVAR this year on Rustock.  PDF here, Powerpoint here.

From a research perspective, Rustock is quite interesting, as it is a complex backdoor trojan that turns a compromised system into a covert proxy, using highly sophisticated methods of evasion.

Chandra is a bit of an expert on Rustock.  He’s also written papers on other subjects that I’ve referenced on the blog here and here.
