It's election year in the United States,everyone must be aware of that by now. We've just observed a Trojanbeing spammed out utilizing a candidate's name, Hillary Clinton, asbait. The email asks you to click a link to download an interview withher. The email circulating has the following subject line:

Subject: Hillary Clinton Full Video !!!

The body of the email looks like this:

The link looks to be coming from[REMOVED]/rdown.php?PNDcx"=id=3D

Looking closer, we see the actual link is:[REMOVED]/rdown.php?PNDcx"=id=3D

But, do not click the link because this link does not take you to avideo. This link downloads a suspect file, "mpg.exe," which is a Trojandownloader. This downloader downloads a file, inst241.exe, which isdetected as Trojan.Srizbi. So far the volume appears to be low, butbeware: do not click this link or any links associated with these spamemails.
