Many Linux-based worms are remote administration tools (RATs), sometimes referred to as key loggers. RATs enable the attacker to gain complete control of a hacked system. Unlike computer viruses, RATs are not limited to a single computer and they can run throughout the infected network.
Spyware can be defined as any program that is installed on a victim machine without the user's permission. Spyware can be divided into two categories: Browser spyware and spyware cookies. Browser spyware sends a page's source back to the attacker's Web server. Spyware cookies record the user's Web surfing habits and sell that information to advertisers. Spyware can be used to steal passwords, click fraud, credit card fraud, and spy on the Web surfing habits of the user.
Trojans are malicious executable programs. In 2004, the big wave of Trojan attack was targeted at Windows PCs. To avoid crashing, the Trojan scans the memory for the operating system, then searches for a program named Winlogon, and tries to replace it with a Trojan program. If the Trojan finds the Winlogon program, it starts the Trojan program and user will have to reboot the infected PC to recover.
Firestorm started at the end of July 2004 and continued into August 2004. It targeted the United States with a strategy of spammers and viruses spreading its payload as fast as possible, infecting as many computers as possible. The worm was rapidly adopted by spammers, and was spread as quickly as possible. It was originally written by a Russian computer security expert and sent to an acquaintance, who then passed it on to a friend. A botnet soon formed, and the number of infections grew at an exponential rate. By 22 August 2004, the botnet had infected more than two million hosts on the Internet, and 20 percent of the world's Internet users were affected by the worm.
When you're looking at a multi-band equalizer, it is first important to understand that audio processing is an anisotropic, and not isotropic, operation, meaning that the process is applied in a different manner depending on the direction a signal moves through the filter. iZotope's Neutron EQ module was designed to be an isotropic, or same-direction, filter, meaning that it operates in the same manner regardless of the direction a signal moves through it. So, for example, a band that is narrow near the upper frequency of a guitar signal will behave the same, regardless of whether that signal is moving toward or away from the speaker. 827ec27edc
