    lol............ Now this was just too funny. Talk about being "creative" with their target marketing!


    A malware infection was propagated through flyers put on windshields in Grand Forks, North Dakota, reports SANS institute.

    The flyers were fake parking violation notices, and instructed people to visit a website (which SANS did not publicize). Once they visited the website, they were infected with a malicious browser helper object.

    From the post:

    "The initial program installed itself as a browser helper object (BHO) for Internet Exploter that downloaded a component from childhe.com and attempted to trick the victim into installing a fake anti-virus scanner from bestantispyware securityscan.com and protectionsoft warecheck.com."

    Lol, its the Virtumonde/Vundo trojan probably the one that Luxecash distributes. The idea sure is creative but he could have used it a lot better.
