Malware found on LaoAirlines.com, travellers beware of other sites


“Sophos has warned Australian travellers looking to book flights to South East Asia to make certain their anti-virus software is up to date before going online after yesterday intercepting malware on Lao Airlines.com.


Users who simply embark on the site will automatically be redirected to another site in China which then attempts to run an exploit and download an executable.”


All we can do is keep warning our users to always be careful, always be vigilant.

Thanks for the warning. Recently there has been a lot of warnings of this kind. Many of them suggested that besides an anti-virus a user should install some special protecting software. The circumstances are forcing people to search for such programs, luckily I’ve got a friend who deals with this, he recommended several variants(Ad-aware, PrivacyKeyboard, Spysweeper, etc.), one of them suited me( PrivacyKeyboard, a reliable anti-keylogger I should say). So, I think that everyone should pay a lot of attention to security and there are multiple opportunities to remain protected.

In this scenario, you may receive non-delivery reports (NDR) when you send e-mail attachments […]

See this quote towards the very end:
“In Australia earlier this month, a majority of Sensis websites including Whitepages, Telstra Bigpond and Yellowpages had to remove advertising on their site after a local security professional and Microsoft MVP discovered malicious malware embedded in the ads.”
