A research engineer in CA's Internet Security Business Unit, reports a new phishing campaign that circulates on Yahoo! Messenger and is instrumented with the help of hijacked accounts. “While using YM recently I received new IM Spam from my one [sic.] of my friends. Just by the look of it I could tell that it was most likely a malware related IM Spammed Message. Following spammed link hxxp://priv{REMOVED}deo.com/live lead me to a fake Facebook Login webpage. If I had entered my Username and Password and clicked login button, my details would’ve been sent to remote server hxxp://priv{REMOVED}deo.com/live/logs.php via HTTP POST. I would then’ve been redirected to a Youtube website, which seems to be legitimate. Watch out for these spam messages; my friend was unaware that her account was sending spam. Note: above mentioned malicious link’s currently active at the time of writing. Please don’t try to access it. Also note that technical information in this post has been obtained under controlled conditions,” Ricardo.
