Earlier this morning SophosLabs noticed a new scam designed to fool users into viewing a web site where they would be hit with a malicious script that installs a spy Trojan. We saw several spam messages alerting users to the supposed shooting of the e-Gold founder...Browsing to each of the domains redirects to a malicious page on another server...The script attempts to exploit several client-side vulnerabilities in order to download and install a Trojan... This is yet another example of the attackers using a blend of spam and malicious web sites to infect victims...
