Waledac SMS Spy Theme - New Campaign ITW
Websense Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has
detected a new Waledac variant in the wild being distributed via email
The new campaign uses a theme whereby the user is enticed to
download an application that will permit them to view other people's
SMS messages online. The download file uses alternating filenames,
including sms.exe, freetrial.exe, and smstrap.exe. ThreatSeeker has
identified thousands of spam emails using this theme.
Not all major antivirus vendors are currently detecting this threat according to this VirusTotal report.
