Art2ro Posted February 4, 2012 Posted February 4, 2012 (edited) http://ph.news.yahoo...-060408348.htmlA new breed of malware has taken data theft one step further - it now grabs document and spreadsheet files and uploads them to a cloud-based file hosting service.Computer security firm Trend Micro said the new malware it recently encountered particularly sends the stolen files to Sendspace.com."Sendspace was recently used for dropping stolen data but wasn’t done automatically by malware. As reported late last year, hackers used Sendspace for rounding up and uploading stolen data... However, this is the first time we’re seeing malware being used to upload stolen data to the file hosting and transfer site.In this attack, the infection starts with a malicious file, Fedex_Invoice.exe, detected as TROJ_DOFOIL.GE.Trend Micro said the filename suggests the malware is used for a spam campaign using messages disguised as a FedEx shipment Edited February 4, 2012 by Art2ro 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
