Mal/Iframe-W Description

Mal/IFrame-W is a dangerous piece of malware that is being associated with a spam-type assault that claims to distribute a changelog, but these claims could not be farther from the truth.

Mal/IFrame-W's Nasty Linked Spam Campaign

This pest is being distributed over the net through maliciously spam-infected email attachments. The emails that contain Mal/IFrame-W make the claim that they bare a changelog, but, in reality, they carry and distribute this malware-laced security threat. The file attached in these spam-type emails appears to be a .HTM type file and the email requests to open it in Internet Explorer.

Reportedly, it is known that spam emails associated with Mal/IFrame-W carry the subject line: 'Your Changelog,' and once opened, the body of the email messages states that your changelog is contained within the email's attachment. With this said, however, there have also been several reports that suggest that both the subject line and the body of these emails can vary from spam message to spam message.

What Happens If I Open Up the Infected .HTM File?

Users are warned that it is unwise to open up this attachment on your computer system because it is this file that actually carries the security threat, Mal/IFrame-W. Once you click on this corrupt attachment, your computer system will work to run the dangerous script that it contains, which will result in your computer being infected with Mal/IFrame-W. After the infection, a message will appear inside your web browser that states: 'You are redirecting. Loadingā€¦. Wait pleaseā€¦,' and while this message is being displayed, Mal/IFrame-W has begun to run its malicious script in the background of your computer system. At this point, Mal/IFrame-W has infected your computer system.

What Should I Do if I Accidentally Opened the Attachment and My Machine is Infected

There is a simple solution to curing your computer system of a Mal/IFrame breach and infection. If you have opened the infected email attachment associated with this bit of malware or you have discovered Mal/IFrame-E's malicious presence lurking on your machine in some other way, a malware removal product will help you in completely and successfully removing this security threat from your machine.

With this said, please note that much of today's malware applications like to run in packs of malware. This means that one such malware-based computer virus can be indicative of a larger and more complex problem. Mal/IFrame-W certainly possesses the capability to make your machine vulnerable to other similar malware-laced assaults, and may even be responsible for injecting other threats directly onto your machine.

For this reason, as well as numerous others, this malware product is dangerous to your machine and your privacy. As soon as you have detected or realized this malevolent pest's existence on your machine, it is recommended that you immediately work towards annihilating its dangerous influence.
