I was reading a book when my wife was complaining about her laptop. During our conversation, she asked to me, "Do you know something about rundll-132 ?" Okay.. I said, I have heard rundll32.exe (I don't know much about it. Is it shared object manager? Linux doesn't even need this. How clean it is to give an identity of being static or shared in compile time! )
Where did the number 132 come from? First, it is not a power of 2. So, when my wife called me, I saw that it is 'rundl132.exe' which tries to have a similar look of 'rundll32.exe' Quick googled and found that it is malicious code. I actually applauded for this nice name. This guy who wrote this malicious piece has a sense of humor :)
Well, anyway, it was a nice piece of joke.
