Neymar sex tape is bait to spread new banking Trojan

Saturday, June 18, 2011

PandaLabs, Panda Security's anti-malware laboratory, has detected a new malicious code, Banbra.GYI, which uses a video of rising Brazilian soccer star Neymar to trick users.

The video claims to contain erotic images of the Santos striker with his ex-girlfriend.

However, the truth is there is no such video and users who click the link will actually download a new variant of the well-known Banbra family of Trojans, which has been active since 2003.

Once activated, the Trojan infects the computer and delivers its payload. More specifically, the Trojan is designed to steal users' data when they visit financial institution websites such as Banco Santander and American Express.

Upon visiting one of the compromised websites, Banbra.GYI takes users to a fraudulent Web page where they are asked to enter their login details.

"You should always be suspicious of any messages with eye-catching subjects, as they normally contain malicious links," Luis Corrons, technical director of PandaLabs, said in Business Computing World.

"These Trojans usually spread through email as well as social media sites using links that claim to take users to a YouTube video but actually download the Trojan onto their PCs.

"The best way to protect your computer against these threats is to avoid clicking on links from unfamiliar sources or unexpected messages with unusually intriguing subjects."
