The link in this ‘sensational’ message appears to lead to the BBC site – an organization with a worldwide reputation. But if the user clicks on the link, s/he will be sent to a Russian site which has nothing at all to do with the BBC. This is made possible by the use of HTML in the message – although the user sees one link, there’s another, invisible link underneath, which leads to a totally different site.
And what’s the point? After all, the message isn’t selling anything. Well, according to our virus analysts, when you visit this site, Exploit.JS.ADODB.Stream.o is used to download a Trojan-Downloader (Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agent.uj) onto your machine. And once a Trojan-Downloader is on your machine, it will probably start downloading other malicious programs…
In other words, curiosity can kill your computer. And put your personal data at risk.
