ZmEu (vulnerability scanner)

ZmEu is a computer vulnerability scanner which searches for web servers that are open to attack through the phpMyAdmin program,[1] [2] [3] It also attempts to guess SSH passwords through brute-force methods,[4] and leaves a persistent backdoor. It was developed in Romania and was especially common in 2012.

It is apparently named after Zmeu, a dragon-like being in Romanian folklore.[5]
