New Linux Rootkit Emerges (Threat Post)

Threat Post reports
the discovery
of a rootkit that targets 64-bit Linux systems.
"The Linux rootkit does not appear to be a modified version of any
known piece of malware and it first came to light last week when someone
posted a quick description and analysis of it on the Full Disclosure mailing list. That poster said that his site had been targeted by the malware and some of his customers had been redirected to malicious sites."
