Thread: Email Worm Alert | W32.Mytob.DA@mm

  1. #1
    Well Im sure theres a dozen ways to do this but I received an email form saying...
    We regret to inform you that your account has been suspended due to the violation of our site policy, more info is attached.
    The attachment is labeled "" which contains 1 file cleverly labeled
    PHP Code:
    email-info.htm                                                                      .exe 
    Seems theyve inserted lots of spaces so that you wont see the actual extension. I have scanned with Symantic which is updated and has found nothing. I have also scanned with AVG which only flags the fact that it has a hidden extension and nothing more. Ive spoken to a rep and it seems this has just started and may be a growing problem to be aware of anything similar then. I am currently taking a look on my Virtual Machine now...

    NOD32 found it.

    that was it stopping the file from being created by MSN.

    as a rar file NOD32 didn't see it until i tried to extract.
