QUOTE: The malicious Web sites in the current attack also have a July 4 or fireworks theme within the domain name. ThreatSeeker has been monitoring the registration of these domains. Should the user click on the video, which is designed to appear to be a YouTube video, an .exe is offered. When downloaded the .exe would install the latest Waledac variant onto the user's machine.
