WORM_AUTORUN.CTO. - Your eTicket Makes a Worm Fly
by Marianna Schmudlach / October 20, 2008 6:03 AM PDT

October 20, 1008

Planning your fall holiday? Be careful when booking flights online or opening emails about your ?online flight ticket??or you could crash-land on a heap of malware trouble.

TrendLabs researchers caught spammed email messages featuring bogus eTickets supposedly from Continental Airlines, the fourth-largest airline in the U.S. The message thanks the recipient for availing of a new service called ?Buy flight ticket Online? and provides account details (even a password). Then it makes the recipient simply print out the attached ?purchase invoice and plane ticket? before they use these, and they?re off! How convenient!

Here?s a screenshot:

There?s another wave of malware-bearing spam. This time, the spam claims that ?new clauses? have been added to the legislation regulating your online activities.

Alert ID : FrSIRT/ALRT-2008-06243
Aliases : N/A
Size : 553348 bytes
Rated as : Low Risk
Release Date : 2008-10-20


Description

This Trojan arrives on a system as a file dropped by other malware or as a file downloaded unknowingly by users when visiting malicious Web sites. Upon execution, it drops a copy of itself in the system. It modifies the system registry to enable its automatic execution at every system startup. It tracks the Web browsing activities on the affected system, specifically monitoring the title and address bars. It displays a spoofed login page if a user visits certain legitimate banking sites. This routine tricks the user into giving sensitive account-related information. This Trojan logs keystrokes entered by the user in the user name and password fields of the spoofed login page.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
