Submission + - Six years on, Linux RST-B infections still rife (

grahamlee writes: "Security firm Sophos' blog describes a detection tool for the Linux RST-B virus, which has been in the wild for six years but is still showing up on the firm's honeypots. By running the detection tool, Linux users can help SophosLabs to research the extent of RST-B infection and perhaps understand why it is still infecting Linux boxes, despite being detected by many different Anti-Virus programs.
