Malware authors declare its World War III

By on

Anyone received an email saying that it was World War II? Well, you might want to recheck that email, or even scan your computer with your anti-virus program because it is now a new trick by Malware authors to spread a brand new trojan.

The trojan, known as the Tibs-UO Trojan, usually has the email subject line containing either "Third Wold War has begun", "20000 US Soldiers in Iran" or "US Army crossed Iran’s borders" and contain a link to a website to display a video player showing a mushroom cloud of a nuclear bomb and text on the "invasion" of Iran by the United States.

Playing the clip will infect your computer with the Trojan.
