In this modern world equipped with so many mind blowing technologies, the field of hacking has stamped its importance in a significant manner and that is the reason why highly reputed organizations has vacant spaces for them even every country prefers to have a good team of hackers so that their key websites didn’t go into the hands of bad wishers.

Microsoft is facing some serious issues as counterfeit version of windows software embed with Nitol malware is found in PCs  which are available for sale in China.Just like you go to the market purchase the brand new pc which contains virus in it.  Nitol-infected PCs immediately and automatically search the Internet for other computers to connect to and attack. According to the microsoft  a domain – 3322.org is doing this malicious activity since 2008 and has 70,000 sub domains in its control.

Richard Domingues Boscovich, assistant general counsel in Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit.says

“What’s especially disturbing is that the counterfeit software embedded with malware could have entered the chain at any point as a computer travels among companies that transport and resell the computer,”

Boscovich says

“The Nitol botnet malware itself carries out distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that are able to cripple large networks by overloading them with internet traffic, and creates hidden access points on the victim’s computer to allow even more malware – or anything else for that matter – to be loaded onto an infected computer.”

Microsoft has filled the suit against server owner peng yong and the good news is that Microsoft won the court orders and till now Microsoft has managed to block 37 million malware connection  from 3322.org
