Sophisticated USB trojan spotted in the wild.

Researchers from ESET reported that an advanced data-stealing universal serial bus (USB) trojan dubbed, “USB Thief” was found in the wild and can compromise a system by injecting itself into the execution chain of portable versions of popular applications and disguising itself as a plugin or a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file. The threat is bound to a single USB drive and was reported to have four executables and two configuration files that enable it to avoid detection and prevent researchers from detecting, copying, and analyzing the malware.Source: http://www.securityweek.com/sophisticated-usb-trojan-spotted-wild
