Malicious trojan poses as McAfee alert
Security experts have intercepted a mass mailing purporting to come from McAfee, but which actually spreads a trojan horse. Kaspersky Labs described the mass mailing as "unusual" because the messages attempt to spoof the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lafool.v infection is hidden in a Word document called 'McAfee.Inc. Reports.doc'. The file is 80,635 bytes in size, and allegedly contains a report about the propagation of malicious programs on the Internet. Malicious trojan poses as McAfee alert - Security - www.itnews.com.au
