New Zeus Botnet Worm Posing As “FacebookPhoto_ADD_album.jpeg.exe”

BotnetCareful, folks, there’s a new Worm that is posing as a “Facebook Photo Album” executable.  A .zip file is being emailed and if you install the program within, you’re likely to infect your system.  Currently only 8% of antivirus scanners are detecting this worm, so this one is fresh.

You should never open any attachments from people you do not recognize.  Even if the message is from someone you recognize, think twice before opening a .zip or .exe file.  There really is absolutely no reason to install any software sent to you via email.  If a friend or family member are trying to tell you about a new program, they can send you

Now is also a good time to mention email providers.  We strongly recommend switching to Google Apps, which is free Gmail for businesses.  You are not going to see any messages get through with a .zip attachment while using Gmail.

As always, if anyone has any questions, just let us know!

I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 15 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale storeo-wners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage over 400 computer systems, servers & websites for store-owners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of Peeps' Software -- the only software written FOR consignment & resale stores specifically.
