Orome1 (1901578) writes "Cross-platform malware is still a rare occurrence, so when it's detected, it usually attracts more attention than the malware engineered to affect only one particular platform.

This malware behaves like other Windows botnets but uses source code and libraries that can operate on other platforms."
