The Internet Explorer again : http://www.fireeye.com/blog/uncatego…s-website.html

Something called "Ebury-Rootkit" is infecting Unix-based systems, it seems : https://www.cert-bund.de/ebury-faq

Routery by "Synology" (what a name) were used as BitCoin Miners, I don't have any English-language article on that, only an forum entry : http://forum.synology.com/enu/viewto…072f6&start=15

FTP Servers are seemingly more and more used to place infected program code there (code, not full programs !) : http://www.computerworld.com/s/artic…mong_those_hit

So, placing infected program code is lowering the level of infection from program to "pre-program", so to say.

I predict that one of the the last targets will be the program codes of compilers …
