IFRAME Threat

March 31, 2008

The newest threat to watch out for is called IFRAME. This new virus/threat can actually come in through clicking on IFRAME sites in website searches. Searching for and clicking on a rogue version of ABCNews.com, USAToday.com,News.com or Target.com (these are just a few) will lead to “IFRAME” sites. These “IFRAME” sites will forward your PC to “rogue” sites that advertise fake anti-spyware software loaded with malware (a combination of spyware and virus). Symantec rates this as a medium risk attack and Google is doing its best to actively filter out these rogue search results. A search of ABCNews.com may show IFRAME links such as these:

ABC News Search
How to protect yourself:

1. Don’t click on these IFRAME links if you see them in searches.

2. Make sure your virus software is up to date.

3. Make sure all new Windows updates are installed.
