EvilVNC Beta

I recently received a hit during a scan on my system for EvilVNC.  It appears that there is very little information available on this RAT.  I keep my systems locked down pretty tight and have all security software updating religiously.  Does anyone have any idea how it is distributing itself?  I do use UltraVNC, but I have its scope limited to local network.  Any ideas?

Thanks.

This software states that it detects and removes EvilVNC.

I guess I should have mentioned that Xoftspy was the software I used to find it and remove it.  I'm just trying to find out where it came from and what is the weak link on my system that allowed it to get there in the first place so that I can be sure to fix it!  Thanks for the quick reply.

Oh...That's going to be very hard to track down. As you know it could have gained system entry from just about any site. Chat programs are even under attack now. :-)
