The spoofed CNN and MSNBC messages from last week have altered a bit, taking on a more generic approach.

The subject of the message is still: BREAKING NEWS.

Michael has been tracking these botnets for a while, his work is available here: http://www.vivtek.com/projects/despammed/stormspam.html.

Like the others, this first stage is a downloader, still readching out to 66.199.240.138 to get the rest of the goodies.  Unlike the previous waves, the first executable is named install.exe instead of adobe_flash.exe.  So there's a little something different to search for in your proxy logs.

Enter comment here... a fake TeamViewer page, and that page led to a different type of malware. This week's infection involved a downloaded JavaScript (.js) file that led to Microsoft Installer packages (.msi files) containing other script that used free or open source programs.
distribute malware. Even if the URL listed on the ad shows a legitimate website, subsequent ad traffic can easily lead to a fake page. Different types of malware are distributed in this manner. I've seen IcedID (Bokbot), Gozi/ISFB, and various information stealers distributed through fake software websites that were provided through Google ad traffic. I submitted malicious files from this example to VirusTotal and found a low rate of detection, with some files not showing as malware at all. Additionally, domains associated with this infection frequently change. That might make it hard to detect.
