Visualizza versione completa : W32.MerryX.A - Santa delivers more Christmas malware

24-12-2005, 13.53.02
The Trojan horse MerryX.A is delivered in an e-mail that encourages the recipient to open an attached "animation." While the animation of Santa Claus delivering presents plays, a piece of malware hiding behind the name "SQLServer.exe" is installed on PCs running Windows, according to security staff at Panda Software SL's PandaLabs. The software transmits information about the infected computer to a remote server, and then attempts to download files, which could include other malware, Panda said.
