Rombertik is a highly destructive, mass-mailing Worm which was first detected in 2015 by Cisco.[1]


Rombertik, unlike many viruses released in the '10s, behaves like a traditional computer virus or worm from the '00s. However, it carries a dangerous payload, in that it will render a computer inoperable if it 'discovers' that it has been detected by the system. This has earned it a nickname as the Suicide Bomber Virus.
