A new campaign has been recently deployed by cybercriminals trying to extend the Asprox network of infected computers, relying on fake email messages pointing to malicious online locations. The crooks use as lure an alert that allegedly comes from Facebook, informing the recipient that their password for the social networking website has been changed.
To make the communication more believable, the cybercriminals included in the email original graphics from Facebook and even a brief report of the suspicious activity that triggered the password reset action. Any geoIP search tool would show that the location in the email and the address are not a match, though. With the trap set up, the victim is offered the possibility of changing their password by accessing a given link that should load a form, where the necessary information for completing the operation should be entered. Once compromised, the computer becomes part of the Asprox botnet, which is known for distributing spam and other malware. Asprox, also referred to as Kuluoz, was discovered in 2008 and is rented to cybercriminals for different purposes.


Its infrastructure for distributing spam and malware is known to be a complex one, directing connections to specific pages, depending on the devices they originate from. Android and iOS users land on different pages that run different types of scams through malicious apps.
Visitors can also be directed to various adult websites, a different one for each platform, which either promote other dangerous locations or host malware.

Unlike a lot of other sites, Facebook displays on the Account settings tab the last time you changed your password. Campaigns for increasing the number of infected computers in its network are carried out constantly.


If you’re a regular reader than you probably remember when I explained how to secure your Twitter account as well as how to create a secure password. However, before this, a test is conducted, to check if the system it runs a version of operating system and web browser that is targeted by the cybercriminals, Hoax Slayer says. Granted, it was my test account with all dummy data in it however, that doesn’t mean I should just park it like I had.
