What is noob?

I ran Swatit Freeware Trojan remover, and it detected two cases of "noob." Can you please advise if this is a bot...

I did a quick search using Google for "noob Trojan" and found a number of listings. While the listing from Symantec does not tell you too much, it does give you an idea about noob.
