Rumors of new Download.Ject Worm
We have heard rumors that there maybe a new worm on the loose. Reports have stated that this worm arrives as an innoculous looking instant message on AIM or ICQ which says "My personal home pagehttp://XXXXXXX.X-XXXXXX.XXX/". Once the user clicks on this link Internet Explorer opens a malicious website that infects the user through several IE vulnerabilities such as Object Data, Ibiza CHM and MHTML Redirect.
The most noticeable end-user effects of being infected with this new Download.Ject worm is a modifed Homepage and search pane in the browser. In place of the users ordinary Homepage is a site called TargetSearch and several browser windows displaying adult advertisement and referal links. There are obvious financial motivations behind this worm.
