    FYI...

    MSRT results - Oct 2012...
    - https://blogs.technet.com/b/mmpc/arc...edirected=true
    22 Oct 2012 - "... Top 10 countries with Win32/Nitol detections (January 2012 to October 2012):

    ... Monthly report volume for Win32/Nitol (January 2011 to October 2012):
    > https://www.microsoft.com/security/p...tol/Nitol3.png
    ... This monthís MSRT included two prevalent families - Win32/Onescan, which is a Korean rogue software, and Win32/Nitol. Within the first two days of MSRT release, Win32/Onescan was our top family detected and cleaned by the MSRT tool, while Win32/Nitol took the 9th spot. After one week of report monitoring, while Win32/Onescan was still on top and had been cleaned from almost 1,000,000 machines, Win32/Nitol had slipped to the 11th spot, having been removed from over 36,000 machines. Win32/Nitolís numbers are something within our expectation. The recent takedown which disrupted a large percentage of Win32/Nitolís C&C (command and control) infrastructure is a big factor in explaning why Win32/Nitolís prevalence has been dropping considerably.
