Malicious International Worm


Fraud prevention is never-ending. In a blog we just posted, we talked about how Koobface abandoned Facebook. However, there is a new worm that is targeting Brazilian Facebook users through Facebook chat. And since EVS has many international clients, we want to make you aware of this so you can take personal fraud prevention measures.

The worm (md5 d8dd66f2ec659687c56feb31ae1ac692) is sent through a chat message which contains a link. If the user clicks on the link, their computer then downloads a malicious applet download. The download contains several files, but this is also where the worm is download. The worm is then responsible for stealing the users Facebook passwords.

The worm is also capable of sending malicious messages through GTalk/Orkut and Twitter.
