IME inputs malware

Unread postby Sludge3000 » July 7th, 2010, 6:19 pm

Security watchers have discovered a Trojan that uses built-in Windows functionality to overwrite security software and compromise systems.

The malware - which poses as an antivirus update - uses Windows input method editor (IME) to inject a system, technology that normally creates a means for users to enter characters not supported with their input device. For example, PC users with a 'Western' keyboard would take advantage of the technology to input Chinese or Japanese characters.
