MOSCOW, June 10 (Itar-Tass) - Hundreds of thousands of Internet users have come under massive spam attack via Skype, ESET said on Monday, June 10.
Shortened links in spam messages refer users to a malware page, which downloads and activates the notorious worm Dorkbot that steals private information, such as logins and passwords, from infected computers, the company said.
Experts noted that suspicious links were disguised through legal services designed to shorten long links, and some other resources.
Users in Russia, Germany, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and the United States were affected the worst. Cyber criminals are believed to have sent messages in different languages, depending on the country, to make their spam campaign more effective.
According to ESET, the majority of services that shorten addresses blocked malicious links. The company continues to watch the situation and advises users to refrain from activating links in unsolicited messages sent to their email or social network accounts.
