Rustock's old buddy Harnig is back in action. Harnig is considered to be a very wide spread pay-per-install malware whose sole purpose is to infect PCs and then download and install a variety of other malware on the system for a small fee. There has been a long term relationship between the Harnig and Rustock botnets. For the last two years or so, Rustock has almost always been seen being spread through Harnig.
