Submission + - New Malware Uses Google Docs As A Proxy Server To Phone Home

Yet the more interesting part is the Google Docs addition. Backdoor.Makadocs gathers information from the compromised computer (such as host name and OS type) and then receives and executes commands from a C&C server to do further damage. In order to do so, the malware authors have decided to leverage Google Docs to ensure crystal clear communications.
