Mal/ObfJS-B. - Fake shooting scam used in Trojan attack
by Marianna Schmudlach / March 29, 2008 1:23 AM PDT

29 March 2008

Earlier this morning SophosLabs noticed a new scam designed to fool users into viewing a web site where they would be hit with a malicious script that installs a spy Trojan. We saw several spam messages alerting users to the supposed shooting of the e-Gold founder, for example:


A variety of domains have been used in the scam. Browsing to each of the domains redirects to a malicious page on another server. This page contains a malicious Javascript which attempts to install a Trojan on the victim?s computer. Fortunately, the malicious script is pro-actively detected as Mal/ObfJS-B. The script attempts to exploit several client-side vulnerabilities in order to download and install a Trojan (click image to enlarge).

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
