Zeus-MySpace spam

The insidious Zeus, or Zbot, trojan now is trying to infect users through spam that claims to come from MySpace, Gary Warner, director of research in computer forensics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said in a blog post Monday. The messages falsely inform recipients that they must update their MySpace account. A link is provided -- the scam is leveraging some 30 domains -- and if users click they are brought to a page asking them to enter their login credentials. Doing so brings them to another page that includes a malicious link for a "MySpace Update Tool," which actually installs the trojan. Just 14 of 41 anti-virus products detected the malware as of Monday, according to a VirusTotal report. -- DK

Koobface variants explode

The number of new variants of Koobface, a social networking worm that installs a trojan on victim machines, has skyrocketed during the month of June. According to Kaspersky Lab, the number of Koobface strains rose from 324 at the end of May to nearly 1,000 by the end of June. The worm, which spreads to friends in the form of an invitation to view a video, affects mostly Facebook and MySpace users. Recipients are asked to install a bogus Adobe Flash Player update to view the purported video, but doing so actually installs the trojan, which then spams the same same invite to freinds and can steal data or change DNS settings. — DK
