SuperRAT: non-Event Horizon?

Intego reports a “new, improved” beta version of the Blackhole RAT (Remote Adminstration Tool/Trojan), though the company still doesn’t seem to think much of the thing. Logically enough, it calls this version OSX/BlackHoleRAT.B. However, this seems to be much the same as the variants reported by SecureMac on February 25th: http://www.securemac.com/blackholerat-bulletin.php.
