Situation – You get an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. The email describes your account activity as inappropriate and threatens to terminate your Google account within 72 hours. You are further advised to navigate to a link for further instructions. You navigate to that link and get something installed on your computer. ‘That Something’ is a malicious executable, a Trojan Downloader named “regulamento_orkut.exe”.
When run, the malicious executable downloads another malicious file, “fox.exe”, from the same site. The file copies itself to multiple locations on the infected machine with different names. It also adds itself to startup, and monitors browser activities with the intent to steal user information.
While malicious code is being downloaded a browser window will also popup with objectionable material on it.
So it’s better you don’t trust any such emails and ignore such senseless threats. Stay safe.
