A new batch of Magniber's are out, and these with a new and improved valid (so far) certificate:

Norton vs the new Magniber sample .. detected Immediately


Thanks @Shadowra for the sample
Trojan.Gen.MBT is only a hash based signature, if I remember correctly. Try changing the hash and see if it can stop it.
Edit: The sample is from 21st June. Products like Avast, MD, BD missed it initially. MD added detection after my submission. But these signatures are not as good as Kaspersky and ESET's. ESET also blocks the certificate. So any malware with this certificate will also be blocked. That's why you see ESET on VT shows "Multiple Detection". One for their "A Variant Of Win64/Injector.xx" heuristics and one for the blacklisted signature "Win32/GenCBL.CGI trojan".
I'm pretty sure Norton would've missed it initially also till they added this hash based detection because I think Norton hasn't added behavior/heuristic based detection capability for Magniber yet.
