Valentine’s Day Virus is Back
Security vendors are warning anyone who will listen to prepare for a new Valentine’s Day-themed spam attack this year. They’ve already seen an increase in the messages, which are trying to dupe readers into installing the Waledec bot Trojan. If you fix these types of issues for a living, better go put the removal tool in your toolkit.
Subject lines for the spam, said Sam Masiello , vice president of information security at MX Logic, are "short and sweet," and include "Me and You," "In Your Arms" and "With all my love." From the spam, users who browse to the embedded link reach a site with a dozen hearts, any one of which download an executable file when clicked.
