 A very interesting scam famous in US during end of 2009 and still
continuing to spread the malware. 

 

Refer to the link Below:

downloading-software.html

 

Now the interesting part here is the whois information given by someone
in the comments includes 

 

Fax: 
176. Shastri nagar, dadabari
KOTA, 324005
IN

 

If we do a fresh whois, the result for Fax contact is 

 

Fax: 

   23 Morris Avenue

   Manor Park

   London, London E12 6ER

   GB

 

Also I read somewhere that they users get calls from a call centre based
in Mumbai (don't know how much truth in this) , I feel we all should be
aware of such scams ( we  being in security might not fall prey to this,
but our no so security aware colleagues might). 

 

Does anyone else noticed such scam getting its feet in India ?
