Clicking on the icon to run the video presented a download – an executable file. It just doesn’t get any more suspicious than that.

It was one of the rogues from the FakeVimes family. To see descriptions of the latest in that family, check out the GFI Rogue Blog here.

Thanks Wendy. Thanks Matthew.
