Localised Malware

Trendmicro are reporting seen in the wild localised malware.

The malware strain known as VOBFUS works by copying itself onto removable media like USB sticks with names like porn.exe or sexy.exe. 

This variant also uses file names written in these languages:

  • Arabic
  • Bosnian
  • Chinese
  • Croatian
  • Czech
  • French
  • German
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Korean
  • Persian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Romanian
  • Slovak
  • Spanish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Vietnamese

While the languages may differ, they all translate to I love youNakedPassword, and Webcam.

I’m surprised that Malware is still a thing at times but then I remember that the whole world is online these days – as this development shows.
