MSN IM Worm Spreading

Postby TeMerc » Sun Jan 13, 2008 10:07 am

We've seen some MSN Messenger worms being spread around this weekend.

Once you get infected, your Messenger will start to send web links to all of your contacts. If they follow the links and download the prompted programs, they get infected too.

One of them (detected by us as Trojan.Win32.Agent.dwd) sends links titled "nakedfamily" or "naked4friends", and shows an image on your desktop once you get infected
