Your Computer is Under Investigation
Dec 24, 2008 8:39 AM
A mildly amusing sample came in today.
The sample itself is a very simple Visual Basic application. When executed, the unlucky recipient is shown this message:
Clicking the "Warning" button will play an alarm sound over the computer's speakers. Clicking "FBI" will close the form.
The sample also launched the default browser and opened the page
– the legitimate FBI website.
Other than that, it seems to have no malicious intent and may have been a prank.
Seems rather old-fashioned, considering today's more monetized threat landscape.
