Russian-speaking virus writers have brewed up a stealthy strain of banking Trojan that communicates over peer-to-peer networks using an encrypted darknet protocol that's arguably even stealthier than TOR: I2P. The i2Ninja malware offers a similar set of capabilities to other major financial malware such as ZeuS and SpyEye – …
I'm curious how this interacts with the existing I2P network, if at all. On the one extreme, it could be totally separate, just borrowing the protocol, on the other it might actually relay traffic, which I2P nodes do by default, unlike Tor.
