Researchers from Seculert found that a new variant of the Matsnu trojan (also known as Trustezeb) is using a configurable Domain Generation Algorithm (DGA) to attempt to create domain names that won’t be detected by phonetic algorithms designed to look for nonsensical domain names. The malware can be instructed to take various actions, including downloading and executing files, updating itself, and reporting its status to its controllers.
