    The very dangerous Mylobot botnet known for acting as a gateway for second stage malware payloads has been detected by CenturyLink while downloading the Khalesi data-stealing Trojan on compromised machines. "What makes Mylobot so dangerous is its ability to download and execute any other type of payload the attacker wants, and we now have evidence one of those payloads is Khalesi," stated Mike Benjamin, CenturyLink's Head of Threat Research Labs.
