Important Virus Warning – Bogus IQ test

Researchers from ESET and BitDefender have intercepted some new destructive malware posing as an IQ test, and currently spreading in the wild.

Upon execution, the malware will attempt to spread through removable media (USB Flash Storage, Memory Cards,  Mobile phones, MP3 players etc…) using a time-based logic bomb, and overwrite the MBR (Master Boot Record) of all available drives after 20 or 40 days, making the host’s data inaccessible.

Moreover, once executed, the malware will also issue a software error message, in what appears to be an attempt by the malware authors to make the infected users contact the hosting provider of a particular site stating that it infected them with malware.

Make sure your anti virus software is updated often so you will be protected against the latest threats!
