Fake video and spam «Rosario Ponce confessed her crime and turned herself in to the Police»


Spam emails that simulate being sent by a well-known Peruvian newspaper are circulating, the hook to deceive users is a supposed video related to a news story that is giving a lot to talk about in the Andean country. Clicking on the links starts the download of a Trojan Rosario_Video.exe which for now is not detected by any antivirus (VT 0/34):

The file is hosted on a compromised site that allows its directories to be listed, the following screenshot shows the files created by the attacker:

The cn.txt file works as a simple download counter, for now there are more than 1,600:
