Yesterday we started receiving another wave of Storm e-mails, this time exploiting our love: you got it, Storm started exploiting Valentine’s Day...So is there anything new about this variant of Storm? Not really. The social engineering attack is the same as before. Actually, there are a lot of similarities with Storm’s Valentine’s attack last year (2007). The subjects are almost the same and the only difference is that last year Storm sent itself as an attachment...

Posted Image QUOTE: With Christmas and New Year behind us, it’s not only shops getting ready for Valentine’s Day but Nuwar (a.k.a. Storm) as well. You may receive a Valentine-themed E-mail with subject like “I Dream of you”, “For You….My Love”, “Sending You My Love”, etc. etc. and the body text prompting you to click on a typical Nuwar-style numeric IP address link.
