Trojan 2.0 Crafted Using Web 2.0 Technology

While Trojan 2.0 may sound like the latest in a long line of terms that have attempted to piggyback on the market recognition of Web 2.0, Finjan’s decision to refer to the emerging generation of Trojans thus has some merit because Trojan 2.0 code exploits Web 2.0 systems and software.

As Finjan explains in its report, blocking the Trojan command-and-control structure becomes more difficult when that communication happens over open channels. The commands issued to Trojans can easily be converted into an RSS feed and passed to a free Web-based RSS reader, like Google Reader or My Yahoo.
