Christian Bale and Paris Hilton Spam

This morning some more Spam messages appeared using the subject line of “Christian Bale Agrees to Next Batman Film“. Obviously with the record breaking success of Batman the Dark Night, some users may actually open the message and click the link within the body. The body of the text is even more interesting in which it claims that a hostile takeover occurred with the Hilton hotel chain that forced Paris Hilton off the board (something that could be believable).

This is a continuation of real web-sites being hacked to host the codec based malware with the similar executable name that loads when the page is visited. The URL contained in the message will load the get_flash_update.exe. To make the executable unique small byte changes are likely occurring to spawn new malware.

 

The site hacked:
