MSN Worm Has A Passion For Luxury Watches

| | Comments (3)

An MSN Worm appears to be in the wild which retains some of the functionality of a worm mentioned here, but with some additional features (such as sending spam, for example).

Initially, it sends the victim a message regarding Myspace (in our testing, this was the only message it sent, unlike the worm linked above which had numerous options to choose from):

Before you know it, you'll be sending lots and lots of spam - I hope your friends are looking for high quality luxury watches:

Finally, the payload drops a file onto the computer that attempts to execute remote code - it seems they're attempting to exploit victims with this.

Here's the (randomly named) file in question that causes this, deposited into your System32 Directory:

We detect this as MN.Spooler.

Does anyone happen to know If you buy a watch that is a replica instead and not real thing, are there any jewelers who will service it? I bought it at http://www.theinternetbiz.com 3 years ago.

Clean out those nasty little bugs.
The antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy is one of the best scanners I?ve found so far to help me clean out those nasty little bugs that slows down my computer and causes it to freeze up or crash. It keeps my computer running like new and best of all it cost less than many of the other better known scanners that have been available for awhile now. I was glad that I finally found a scan that works and that?s so affordable. Search-and-destroy Antispyware is the best scanner I?ve used so far and you can find out more information by simply visiting http://www.Search-and-destroy.com.
