Happy New Year... .exe? Posted by Mikko @ 13:20 GMT

Some clown is spamming around an attachment called Happynewyear.exe (md5: 978f25a5ef399b7090454ae2ca4fc364).

When run, this malware drops a nice Christmas tree to your desktop and Systray.

Christmas Tree

The malware itself (detected as Trojan-PSW:W32/Delf.BBE by our antivirus) steals passwords and other assorted information and sends them to lbss.3322.org.

Stay away, don't click, et cetera.
