    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Asprox zombies have recently been blessed with a tool that sniffs out
    | potentially vulnerable sites running Microsoft's Active Server Pages and then
    | tries to commandeer them using SQL injections. When infections are
    | successful, the pages then redirect visitors to websites that silently
    | install a malware ****tail that includes the Asprox malware. The vicious
    | cycle gives the scheme worm-like capabilities.
