Trik: A bot with lots of tricks up its sleeve

Over the past couple of months, CyphortLabs identified a new version of Trik bot. Our in-the-wild Top Threats identification shows this bot to be one of the top in June and July. Trik is a worm which propagates through removable and network drives. It can also propagate by copying itself in web root folders, ftp folders or other folders that are accessible online. It is also a backdoor that communicates via IRC. Other names of this bot are Backdoor:Win32/Kirts or Worm:Porphiex.
