    Malware Targeting Windows 8 Uses Google Docs


    Initially, I thought that Backdoor.Makadocs was a simple and typical back door Trojan horse. It receives and executes commands from a command-and-control (C&C) server and it gathers information from the compromised computer including the host name and the operating system type. Interestingly, the malware author has also considered the possibility that the compromised computer could be running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012.
