Malware clad French photo feigns as Facebook: Sophos
Security experts Sophos, have deciphered a malware attack caused by furtive French photo that feigns as Facebook and spams emails of users. While this is nothing new has malware makers have long used pornographic content to lure unsuspecting users to click on mal content, the fact Facebook is being used is worrying.
According to the Sophos, it has intercepted one of these emails and has found out that the written content is in French, but it has been clearly written by someone who is not a native French speaker. The spam contains Mal/VB-AER and Troj/ZbotMem-B and apparently these files are hidden in an encrypted ZIP with a password. However, these are very common techniques and most anti-virus tools are quite adept at phishing out such nuisances.
