Don’t fall for a fake virus outbreak warning

August 2nd, 2006 by Patrick S

F-Secure have received several reports of a mass mailing that’s going around. The messages have been spoofed to look like they are from update@microsoft.com and arrive with title “Warning! New Virus On The Internet! Update Now!”.

 

 

The link in the mail goes to http://update.microsoft.go.ro and downloads an IRC backdoor. Administrators might want to filter web traffic to this site.
