Read a rogue?

by LS Anders on October 14th, 2010 in Rogues, Security Alert.

Today’s rogues have many ways of trying to trick user to install them.  Recently we discovered a page that was offering free books for download.


































A professional looking site, at least on the surface, but for example clicking any of the translation flags on the top does nothing. Downloading any of the books will bring down a file named [title].PDF.exe or even [title].PDF________________________________________________________.exe


Opening this file will not offer any good reading; instead you will be presented with one of the latest rogues. In this case it installed the rogue Smart Engine.
