Storm: Now Using the NFL as Bait

Via the F-Secure "News from the Lab" Blog.

Today we started seeing new Storm mails and the web pages changed layouts completely. Now the theme is National Football League (NFL) which is timely considering the 2007 NFL season started on the 6th of September. The website even has the correct score, statistics, and schedule information.

What's interesting is that the website they want you to visit doesn't contain exploit code anymore. To become infected you have to click on one of the links or on the picture (they all point to the same file – tracker.exe) and run the file. Still, this can change at any moment so don't click on any links you receive in these e-mails.
