comment Has this method ever been used by viruses to check if system has already been infected?
"Of course, it becomes a great signature for anti-virus and other pieces of competing malware" right so that's what my idea was that if the marker used to id an infected system changes each "generation" then it would be much harder for the AV to identify an infection.

I've this about mutexes before and don't understand what you mean. Could you elaborate? A mutex is a function you call to lock a resource and pertains to programming e.g. computing.llnl.gov/tutorials/pthreads/#Mutexes

comment How The Sony Hack Was Traced, and So Quickly?
I red that while it's suspected the DPRK is behind the hack, it's actually unclear which country the hack was launched from. I don't know how this could work. If I find the news article again I'll post it.
