Description

The Zincite backdoor was discovered on this system. Zincite is a trojan backdoor that is automatically installed by the MyDoom.M mass-mailer virus. The backdoor allows attackers to gain full control over the system. The Zincite backdoor is also used by the Zindos worm to spread itself. Most systems that have the Zincite backdoor also tend to be infected with MyDoom.M and possibly Zindos as well.
