Late Valentine E-cards By Storm Trojan

Latest Nuwar/Storm campaign over the weekend offering belated Valentine e-cards. The malicious e-cards contain a URL to random pages sporting a love theme linking to the Storm executable. The bait pages by themselves do not contain any exploits and rely solely on end-user interaction to click and install the malware. The executables being offered are “love.exe” and “withlove.exe”, both being hosted on a fast-flux domain.

This is not the first time has been abused to host malware laced pages. Zlob a.k.a Puper Trojan did that last year and also spam messages these days contain Google’s Blogger links to that do simple forwards to the spammer’s domain.

The weird thing about this is why would anyone launch a Valentine-themed campaign in April?
