Couple of days back the alleged Yahoo IM worm made all the news, and now it’s the Windows 7 Trojan that is spreading on systems like anything. The infected program is disguised as compatibility checker tool in an email attachment that vouches as Upgrade Advisor for Windows 7 OS. For Windows 7 users it is the perfect bate, as everyone these days is eager to know about Windows 7 compatible drivers and whether their hardware is compatible to run Windows 7 optimally. Extracting the contents of the zip folder attachment can spell doom’s day for your system as it installs Trojan.Generic.3783603 on to your Windows PC. In addition to that it installs root-kits that allow hackers to take control of your system remotely, turning it into a zombie system.
The social engineering elements of this Trojan spreading mechanism is very potent, so we can expect the number of system’s infected by this false email to rise rapidly in coming days. To avoid this kind of Malware to infect your system don’t open any such email’s from unknown contacts.
