Hackers spamvertise World Cup wallchart Trojan

A Trojan horse that poses as a World Cup wallchart has begun circulating on the net. The Haxdoor-IN Trojan horse is been spamvertised in messages, written in German, that purport a program that will allow fans to keep tab on football teams participating in next month's eagerly anticipated tournament.

 

Windows users who follow links in these messages and download the software will wind up with infected PCs. Net security firm Sophos says all the spam emails promoting downloads of the malware it has seen so far have been written in German. "There is no reason to believe that hackers will not switch to using other languages to increase their pool of potential victims," it warns.

:lol: "Please install the following *.jpg images!!!"

 

Goes on the list of stupid things to do, i.e., "Please download the uninstaller from the website," or

"Are you not sure that you don't want to not uninstall the opposite of reversing the uninstallation of not reinstalling the application?"
