New Malware Attacks French Users

Security company Websense reported on December 9, 2008 that a malware piece was targeting French users by exploiting some new security updates recently released by Microsoft. According to the company, to make this malware appear more authentic, spammers have added a real Microsoft security alert 951306 (referred to as CVE-2008-1436) in their fraudulent e-mail.

Moreover, the fake e-mail gives instructions for its recipient in English and French. And just like with most spam cases, e-mails in this campaign too show an attachment namely MS0003-WIN.scr that users are encouraged to click on.
