TOKYO (MacHouse) – The cyber scum organization behind Windows OS-based malware title called Antivirus 2008 has exploited several new websites. One of the victimized websites is run by Saudi Arabian government’s investment authority known as Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA). (Screenshot 01 shows its English index page.) According to its About Us page, SAGIA was founded by the Saudi Arabian government in April, 2000. (See Screenshot 02.)
This Saudi Arabian investment authority website has been exploited and then used as a redirection point for the fake anti-virus scan website through the domain of antivirus-scanonline.com. As you probably know already, this fake anti-virus scan website has been installed to distribute a computer virus known as Troj/FakeVir-BF.

The cyber scum group behind Antivirus 2008 has exploited SAGIA’s website and installed ill codes/files to redirect Internet users to the fake antivirus scan website hosted through the domain of antivirus-scanonline.com. For example, if you access the link shown here, you will see a spam content titled ·$· BABY ·$· Save at least 10 % for a 1/2 second or longer. (See Screenshot 03.)
