Virus Bulletin - ICE IX Bot Paper
Abstract: The ICE IX bot is considered to be a descendent of the
Zeus botnet because it uses some of Zeus’s source code. ICE IX communicates using the HTTP protocol, so it can be considered to be a third generation botnet. While it has been used for a variety of purposes, a major threat of ICE IX comes from its manipulation of banking operations on infected machines. As with any bot, infection results in establishing a master-slave relationship between the
botmaster and the compromised machine"
