the Malware is able to perform all four teams.


Analysts the company "Doctor Web" reported the appearance of a new Trojan for Linux that uses to generate malicious Protocol text messaging IRC. The main feature of the Trojan is that it is written in a relatively new programming language Rust (the first stable version was released in 2015).

Linux Trojan.BackDoor.Irc.16 (according to the classification of "Doctor Web") is a cross-platform backdoor with limited functionality. The malware is able to perform all four teams. He can join the specified chat channel, to send to the control server information about the infected device, to transmit information about running programs and delete itself from the infected computer. In order to run a Trojan on another system, for example, Windows, virus writers only need to recompile the malware.

The researchers believe that the Linux.BackDoor.Irc.16 is a someone created the prototype, as indicated by the lack of activity in used for receiving commands IRC channel and mechanisms to propagate.
