    For fans of Big Brother Brasil, the following spammed email message is tough to disregard:


    Jose Lopez Tello, Trend Micro Virus Coordinator in Latin America, says the page translates as:

    Exclusive Material

    The German guy tells, for the first time, how he got HIV.

    Since today, everything will be different for the German guy, not for his fans, not for being the Brazil Big Brother winner, but for being an HIV carrier.

    In a complete report, he tells how he got infected, how was it and how he was evading the problem.

    The “German guy” mentioned above is Diego Bissolati Gasques, winner of the seventh season of Brasil Big Brother. “German” is a translation of Gasques’ nickname Alemão.

    The email contains a clickable link to http://ofuxicoterra.{BLOCKED} However, once a user clicks the linkmost probably to get more information about Gasques and his supposed revelationusers are redirected to another malicious site: http://0fuxico.{BLOCKED} The file name, which roughly means “Complete Material,” is detected by Trend Micro as TROJ_DLOADER.RSP.

    While curiosity is not really always a bad thing, recipients of this emailfans of BBB most especiallyare better off not clicking the link so as not to compromise their systems.
