Firefox Users Beware

Firefox users beware … Zango and Trojan.Codec malware pushers want your browser …
landing on “sex(dot)stylishvideo(dot)com” the viewer is presented with the following …



The bogus message that you need to install “Media Codec” is a typical Trojan.Zlob infection,


Trojan-Downloader.Zlob.Media-Codec often silently downloads and installs rogue security programs such as SpywareQuake, SpyFalcon and WinAntivirusPro, but may install other malware as well. Some variants of Trojan-Downloader.Zlob.Media-Codec have backdoor functionality, giving a remote attacker the ability to control and use the infected machine for malicious purposes


But what I find interesting is the other message in the 2nd highlighted section – “Opera & Firefox Users – Click Here” … well that’s the first time I’ve seen that. So what happens when you click the link … Oh my! several different Trojan.Codec or Trojan.Zlob will whack you. Then for good measure you get prompted by Zango too …


 


I thought Zango said they were cleaning up their act, yeah I know, they have said that before. But yet we still see them on hard-core adult sites in the same company as known malware … just more lies!
