Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson, Malware Distribution

by Andy on June 26th, 2009 in Security Alert.

The trend of exploiting current news events to deliver malware continues to push the boundaries of decency. Its not very often we are taken aback by malware distribution methods, but the recent vulture-like exploitation of the Air France disaster and deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett really is plumbing the depths of social engineering techniques.

The sites pushing this round of malware are redirecting from:

hxxp://video.xmancer.org/ to

hxxp://alls-tube-here.com and finally to

hxxp://oneplace-all-exe.com/

... to download a streamviewer.exe application.
