Update: Gromozon vs Marco Giuliani

Yesterday Marco Giuliani reported that except for two, it appeared as though all domains used to spread Gromozon were down. It appears that the hiccup was brief as today we learned:
"As everyone could think, Gromozon team started a new attack using new strategy showing great programming skills. We’re monitoring the situation and I’ll write updates as soon as possible. I’m updating Prevx for detect these new files."
This was not unexpected. Scum writers like that will only hide out only so long before they are itching to steal more innocent people's passwords, bank and credit account numbers, and, ultimately, their identity. At the very least, those infected will have one nasty time cleaning their personal computer.
