As Christine mentioned earlier today in her post regarding Koobface and how it uses fake Flash players to trick people into downloading malware, a smart move is to only download Adobe Flash player from… Adobe!
Here's another example of a social engineering scam, this time using a new Bank of America online banking system.
Clicking on the link leads to a fake BoA page with a "video" showing what the new site looks like. To view you have to download the updated Flash player.
If you run the fake Flash player it downloads another file from premierinet.com which in turn is a trojan that hides itself with a rootkit, steals confidential information and posts it to a server in Ukraine.
Again, we recommend that you only download Adobe Flash Player from Adobe's website here.
