Top Weekly News Spam

This morning we detected another spam campaign with a very similar motivation to the MSNBC and CNN spam attacks that were detected recently. The vector for infection is a re-direction to a phony video page. In this case the user is asked to download an update which appears to be a video codec identified as installer.exe or better known as Trj/Exchanger.  We expect that these type of attacks are only going to evolve over a period of time to be much more sophisticated.
