This morning the Celebrity spam campaign continued with a few new fake video codec sites delivering a downloader Trojan designed to install a fake security product known as AntiVirus XP 2008. It’s apparent now that a number of these spam campaigns are only interested solely in distributing this one particular fake security product. The file downloaded is called video99.exe or video66.exe and varies depending on the email message and the site used (HTML page names often correspond to the binary used index99.html, index66.html, etc).
Some of the subject lines of this particular spam campaign is:
“John McCain to Paris Hilton: Cosmo, baywatch!”
“Britney Spears Shaves Head at Request of Zombie Overlord”
