Storm Worm is Back with a Vengeance

Remember back in April when spam seemed to have disappeared from your inboxes? Well, of course, I spoke too soon back then. It was too good to be true.

I've noticed the spam surging starting again in the past few weeks. It could be due to another outbreak of that ever-evolving, ever-growing and ever-nimble Storm worm, according to both CERT and the FBI.

Sophos reports it's part of an FBI vs. Facebook spam campaign. The link in the e-mail leads to the a piece of malware called fbi_facebook.exe.
