Spammers send bird flu malware

Spammers are now distributing a trojan (Naiva-A) pretending to be a Word document with information about the bird flu epidemic to try and trick users into viewing it.

However, once run the trojan executes two Word macros to run and install another program (Ranky-FY) onto the now infected machine which gives hackers the ability to control that computer.

So as always be careful what attachments you run and ensure your anti-virus / anti-spyware software is up-to-date.
