Warnings Given Over Fake 'Tony Blair' Emails

Recipients of emails with the subject line "BBC: Tony Blair email account hacked!" should avoid going any further. Visitors to the destination website, which they expect to contain screenshots of the UK leaders email account, are soon disappointed.

A trojan is installed on the victims computer, which in turn installs further malicious software which steals passwords and sensitive information from the host. The trojans include PWSAgent-A, JDownL-A, Viper-A, Viperjs-A and the Dumaru-BE variants.
