A malware author has left a note to the Avira team inside a Zbot binary.

The unpacked executable contains the message

Hello my friends from Avira! Your topic "Hard times for hackers" is a very stupid text for stupid lamers. RZSD




This is probably a reponse to an article at Avira's web site about a previous hidden message.

Leaving messages to AV seems to be a new trend :)
