Another Messenger worm spreading Posted by Mikko @ 18:41 GMT

There's a MSN Messenger worm spreading.

It sends messages to other Messenger Contacts that are along the lines of:

  Psssssst .... just between me and you, please accept
  Looking for hot summer pictures ? well here they are !!

…and includes a link to a file hosted on chatamis.net.


Chatamis.net seems to be an innocent bystander. They have been notified.

We detect the file as Backdoor.Win32.IRCBot.acd.
