A_ustin allegedly broke into several named servers, including “Odin1,” “Zeus1,” and “Pub3,” as well as Linux Kernel Organization founder Peter Anvin’s private email server, and installed the “Phalanx” rootkit—a backdoor that would allow him to connect to the infected computer and install additional software on the target—and the “Ebury” trojan, which harvested credentials of those logging into the infected computer. He also allegedly used his unauthorized administrative privileges to insert messages that would display when the servers restarted._
