Three years later the Defense Ministry’s Technical Research and Development Institute awarded Fujitsu a ¥178.5m ($2.3m) contract to develop the code which could destroy the malware and collects the information of its creators. Fujitsu has now developed code for the Japanese government.
The code is designed specially to identify malware, chiefly that which is used to set up a botnet, and can both eliminate it on the host PC and also identify which computer the malware came from, then attempt to erase the code at source. The software has also shown more limited utility at identifying key loggers and other code designed to steal data.
And according to the Japanese government the code will be used to identify the origin of infections for domestic systems and not used overseas, since Japanese law makes it difficult to use such tools outside of national borders.
