Further to yesterday’s blog at http://www.eset.com/threat-center/blog/2009/08/03/slideshare-used-to-spread-malware, I hear from Sebastián Bortnik that the account holder that posted those malicious slides to Slideshare has been banned, and the slide decks are no longer available.
However, he (the black hat, not Sebastián!) had managed to post 2,473 slides with malicious links before he was stepped on: see the screenshot at http://blogs.eset-la.com/laboratorio/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/slideshare3.png.
Totally off the topic, but congratulations to the Research and Development team in Slovakia for achieving yet another VB100 award in Virus Bulletin’s latest test, this month on Vista Business Edition SP2 X32 platform. Not to mention a very respectable RAP (Reactive and Proactive) score of nearly 80%.
