Webroot notes a trojan that runs only on the newest plaforms, but not even on XP

Webroot’s blog has a story about the Trojan-Downloader-Tacticlol which is unusual in that it runs in Windows Vista or 7 environments but simply stops as done (and does nothing) in an XP environment. Sometime older operating systems are safer, maybe? The link is (web url) here.

Webroot notes that antivirus companies will now have to focus their research on new platforms as well as older, more familiar systems.
