Breplibot.b is a backdoor with bot capabilities. It connects to several IRC servers and waits for commands from the backdoor author. The backdoor tries to utilize Sony DRM software for hiding its process, file and registry keys. An AV vendor discuses this in even more detail. Sony BMG will temporarily suspend the manufacture of copy-protected CDs and re-examine its digital-rights management strategy, the media giant said on Friday.
