    Angry Pandemic of the botnets 2011

    13 Jan 2011 - "... On Tuesday morning a new variant* of Waledac was distributed to members of the botnet. Yesterday it started spamming again, but now it's back to sending pharmaceutical spam promoting "the magic blue pill" which we have seen previous versions of Waledac do in the past. As in previous spam campaigns, the spammers are using redirections via compromised legitimate sites... The new spam campaign doesn't redirect to malicious content, just to spam content but that could change at any point if the people behind Waledac decides to grow the botnet. We have seen hundreds of different subjects being used in this campaign, here are some examples:
    Wonderful revealing effect on your libido.
    I dream u to be vigorous, dive into u dream this too
    The most excellent way to satisfy her
    Your gf wants your organ to be the finest worker of the year!
    Want to act like a xxxstar? Bang a blu-colored pill!
    FDA-approved blue-blu-colored med to heal ED!
    She needs YOU to grow your PENI!
    Wish to surprise and gratify your lady tonight?
