Creating Waves of Awareness

A Virus from 2009 Making the Rounds Again

Facebook password-reset spam is Bredolab botnet attack

By Ryan Naraine for Zero Day | October 27, 2009 -- Updated 08:27 GMT (01:27 PDT)


Summary: Virus hunters are raising the alarm for a large-scale spam attack that uses fake Facebook password-reset messages to trick PC users into downloading a dangerous piece of malware.

 

According to Websense, the address of the sender is spoofed to display "support@facebook.com," a trick commonly used to trick targets into believing it's a legitimate e-mail from the popular social network.

 

The messages contain a .zip file attachment with an .exe file that connects to two servers to download additional malicious files and joins the Bredolab botnet which means the attackers have full control of the PC, such as steal customer information, send spam emails. One of the servers is in the Netherlands and the other one in Kazakhstan.

SNOPES SAYS THIS IS TRUE

In the coming days, you should be aware.....Do not open any message with an attachment called: Invitation FACEBOOK, regardless of who sent it. It is a virus that opens an OlympIc torch that burns the whole hard disc C of your computer. 



This virus will be received from someone you had in your address book. That's why you should send this message to all your contacts. It is better to receive this email 25 times than to receive the virus and open it. 



If you receive an email called: Invitation FACEBOOK, though sent by a friend, do not open it and delete it immediately. It is the worst virus announced by CNN. 



A new virus has been discovered recently that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever.

 

It is a Trojan Horse that asks you to install an adobe flash plug-in. Once you install it, it's all over. And there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information of their function is saved. 

 

The criminal was put in jail for 4 years
