New Spam Malware Real Footage of Malaysian Flight MH 17 Shot Down

Boeing 777 aircraft carrying 283 passengers and 15 crew members, that was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17 by a ground-to-air missile. So far, its unclear that who is behind the tragic incident, while Ukraine and the insurgents blamed each other.
Within just a week, at least six bogus Facebook pages that popped up the names of the Boeing 777 victims. According to the Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald, three of the fraudulent pages were created in the names of children who were on the plane and died.

People who desires to watch the MH17 Flight’s shot down video, it will lead users downloading malware into their systems or potentially unwanted applications (PUPs), similar to what we have seen in many other spam campaigns of the types.
This is neither the first nor will be the last attempt of cyber criminals to leverage the tragedy of MH17 Malaysian airliner. Last week, cyber crooks used Twitter platform to widely spread short links that directed victims to the web pages known to have been linked with a variant of Zeus Trojan and the Sality malware as well, in order to steal financial information of the victims and to infect their systems with the malwares.
