Following my last message - I hope that it reached everyone - I was able to detect the "entry point" in my system. 
According to MSSE report, it entered using the CVE-2012-0507 (Java Atomic Reference Array) and another instance of 
Blacole.FU was detected.

The weirdest thing is that apparently, this vulnerability was corrected in Java7u3 and I had - before updating just 
now - Java7u4.

Another interesting point is that i didn't knew the existence of a free antivirus solution by ZoneAlarm. Once, I had 
bought a license but i didn't renewed it - renew 50USD, new user 40USD (really nice marketing option). Well, but to 
the point. I installed it and uninstalled MSSE. Just ran a full scan and just five minutes on it, a Zbot trojan was 
detected on AppLocal/Roaming/Acdef/syeta.exe.

Let's see what it shows more, but I guess I'm switching off the network cable :)
