First WMF mass mailer ItW (phishing Trojan) now spreading in Australia


The first worm (mass mailer) to (ab)use the WMF 0day is now spreading in Australia.

Our initial reports indicate the worm is not massive, however it steals financial information from users (Phishing Trojan from a known group) it infects and is causing quite a buzz in Australian media. We expect it to break as a full-blown media hype this morning, tops tomorrow morning.

The worm *does* do the said damage, but as we said does not seem to be widely spread. No reports outside of Australia have been received as of yet. SecuriTeam Blogs Australia: First WMF mass mailer ItW (phishing Trojan)
