MAD Monday

Posted by on Jan 9, 2012 in Mad Monday, Malvertising

True to the word cloud from last week, this week has me quickly infecting my machine when searching for online racing games. In the following video, you’ll see me infect my machine in less than 97 seconds: epicplay-malware.wmv

The players in today’s MAD Monday are as follows:

– Aol.com is the publisher

– Google.com is the advertising network

Epicplay.com is the advertiser. They are distributing binaries that result in Microsoft’s antivirus scanner triggering alerts. Don’t just take Microsoft’s word for it though, 18/43 virus scanners on VirusTotal have something to say about this binary as well.
