Be careful with viruses spreading via e-mails with Gaddafi’s death pictures

Lately there have been a lot of viruses in the Internet that got our company’s attention. But this one is new, absolutely new. Among numerous ads inside the web there is one main that caught our sights. There is a letter with the subject like ‘Fw: AFP Photo News: Bloody Photos: Libya dictator Moammar Gaddafi’s Death’. And there is a rar archive allegedly with those photos people can find inside of the letter. Of course, a lot of people are interested in these issues and would open it to see what is exactly inside of it. But instead of the promised photos people get trojan or some virus.

This kind of virus has been known since 2007. And an interesting thing is that the virus infects only systems with Windows. That is why we warn you again and again that you should be careful and pay attention to such suspicious things in the Internet. Hackers do their money in such way and ordinary people are getting hurt. There was another example in 2009 when Michael Jackson died and there were a lot of spams and malicious links spreading through the web. So, think twice before you open some sort of unknown letter, files and links. Because each of them can contain some threat you do not want to have inside of your PC.
