Fake Anti-Virus Spam

This morning we detected another malspam campaign this time focusing on delivering the rouge anti-virus application XP AntiVirus 2008. This particular application has been used numerous times before as the malspam payload to infect users and has been seen in some of the CNN alerts, MSNBC, IE 7.0 attack, etc. The idea here is to trick users into executing the setup application that when subsequently installed will prompt the user with popups informing them they need to upgrade to the professional version by providing fake information concerning threats found.
