You Know it’s Election Year When…[DANGER>>Hillary Video Spam] | February 15, 2008

It’s election year in the United States, everyone must be aware of that by now. We’ve just observed a Trojan being spammed out utilizing a candidate’s name, Hillary Clinton, as bait. The email asks you to click a link to download an interview with her. The email circulating has the following subject line:

Subject: Hillary Clinton Full Video !!!

The body of the email looks like this:

The link looks to be coming from http://www.google.com/pagead/iclk?sa=3Dl&ai=3DRwGGv&num=3D96249&a=durl=http://canotajetrilly.com/%5BREMOVED%5D/rdown.php?PNDcx”=id=3D

Looking closer, we see the actual link is:

http://canotajetrilly.com/%5BREMOVED%5D/rdown.php?PNDcx”=id=3D

But, do not click the link because this link does not take you to a video. This link downloads a suspect file, “mpg.exe,” which is a Trojan downloader. This downloader downloads a file, inst241.exe, which is detected as Trojan.Srizbi. So far the volume appears to be low, but beware: do not click this link or any links associated with these spam emails.
