Abstract

A Windows ScreenSaver executable inside a ZIP file attached to email distributed multiple malware in multiple stages to the computers of hundreds of University of Florida (UF) students and faculty.

Email sent out Monday morning appeared to be from a UF user and had a subject line that read “You have a new fa.” Opening the attachment and executing the SCR file unleashed a little recognized variant of the Upatre downloader trojan which cloned user IDs and sent out email notifications with the subject line “Upatre Infection” to other users in the network.
