The Kenzero virus was first discovered on the November 27, 2009, but researchers think it went undetected for a few months prior to the initial discovery.
Kenzero attacks computers that download files through peer-to-peer networks (P2P). Once the file is opened, the virus locates the victim's browsing history and publishes it online. People can then view the file(s).
