Home Malware Programs Trojan Sources FunnyPicture.jpg.exe


Posted: November 7, 2008

FunnyPicture.jpg.exe is a crafty Trojan that is activated through an email. The venomous spammed email is concealed in a Hallmark ecard under the subject "You've received A Hallmark E-Card!" Once the FunnyPicture.jpg.exe email is opened it enables a hacker to have complete accessibility to your computer making you vulnerable to losing money with online banking accounts, exposing sensitive personal information leading to identity theft, credit card fraud and numerous other damaging nightmares.

One interesting demonic feature of the FunnyPicture.jpg.exe Trojan email is the use of the letters jpg in its name to induce and trick you to believe the email is in fact an image or card so that you click on it and that it is not an executable file which is indicated by exe at the end of the name of the file. The FunnyPicture.jpg.exe email by placing both jpg and exe in the name wants to confuse you into believing exe may be an error and that the email is in fact a jpg or image, which of course is not true. Do NOT click on the email. Always beware of any email you receive where you do not know who the sender is.
