A wave of viruses hits VKontakte social network

11 May 2011, by — admin ()

A wave of viruses hits VKontakte social networkA new wave of extortion viruses in the most popular social network in Russia, VKontakte, uses browser vulnerabilities as well as typical social engineering methods to distribute itself.

As “bait” the user is promised higher ratings in the social network or a certain amount of money in the network’s internal currency.

The user is directed to a phishing website which imitates the social network’s interface and asked to enter their password. The password is then stolen and used to send this offer to the user’s friends, while the user will receive an executable file which copies the contents of the operating system host file.

Then, when the user tries to enter almost any popular russian social network (Vkontakte, Odnoklassniki,, they land on the fraudster’s website, which asks them to send a paid SMS message.

The easiest way to remove such an infection is to manually clean the contents of the file “C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts” and check the computer drives with a good quality antivirus program.
