Network Engineers nightmare:Operation Ghost Click DNS servers to shut down in March

One of the more widespread malware efforts over the past few years was the DNSChanger scam, which installed a Trojan horse that would change the DNS server settings on affected computers to divert traffic to rogue servers.

The DNS system is essentially the Internet’s phone book that allows your computer to resolve a URL to the IP address of the server that hosts its contents. By changing a computer so that it uses a rogue DNS server, the DNSChanger malware was thus able to redirect valid URLs (such as those for banking institutions) to malicious Web sites in order to steal personal information.

New Drive-By Spam Infects Those Who Open Email — No Attachment Needed

Getting infected just got a whole lot easier, researchers say

By Tim Wilson
Attackers have developed a new way to infect your PC through email — without forcing you to click on an attachment.

According to researchers at eleven, a German security firm, the new drive-by spam automatically downloads malware when an email is opened in the email client. The user doesn’t have to click on a link or open an attachment — just opening the email is enough.

“The new generation of email-borne malware consists of HTML e-mails which contain a JavaScript which automatically downloads malware when the email is opened,” eleven says in a news release.”This is similar to so-called drive-by downloads, which infect a PC by opening an infected website in the browser.”

The current wave of drive-by spam contains the subject “Banking security update” and has a sender address with the domain fdic.com. If the email client allows HTML emails to be displayed, the HTML code is immediately activated.

The user only sees the note “Loading…Please wait,” eleven says. In the meantime, the attempt is made to scan the PC and download malware.

Aside from updating their anti-spam and anti-malware tools, users can fight the new attack by deactivating the display of HTML e-mails in their email client, eleven advises. They can choose the option of displaying emails in pure-text format only.

Study: BlackHole appears, Conficker remains

Eighty-five percent of all malware is web-based, and some 30,000 websites are newly infected with malicious code each day, according to Sophos’ “Security Threat Report 2012.”

The study (PDF), which polled 4,300 security professionals, found that while threats such as rogue anti-virus are dropping, there is an increase in drive-by downloads, by which users are infected with malware simply by visiting legitimate sites that have become compromised.
