Threat Type: Malicious Web Site / Malicious Code
Websense Security Labs? ThreatSeeker? Network has received reports of a new Waledac variant in the wild.
The new spammed variant continues to use the Valentines theme. Once a user opens the URL in the spammed message, he is redirected to a site with 2 puppies and a love heart to give a Valentines theme. The user is then enticed to download a Valentines kit to prepare a present for a loved one, which is a new Waledac variant.
This variant has a very low AV detection rate.
