Porn Malware Blackmails Victims Over Browsing Histories

Apr 16, 2010 12:15 PM PST
TOKYO — A nasty virus called the Kenzero, which originated in Japan, has hit the Internet.

The virus takes screen grabs of surfer browsing histories then publishes a list of all the sites they have visited online.

Later, a dialog box or email is then sent to the surfer, demanding a $16 credit card payment to remove the list.

So far, the trojan has been detected inside some video files of explicit porn anime games shared on the Winny file-sharing service. Infected surfers says they were prompted to enter personal information in order to activate the games.
