    The spammed email contains a URL link to a Yahoo! Geocities web page which is shown in Figure 4, and when the link “Play now” is clicked, it shows a casino related image ad as shown in Figure 5.

    There is no activity seen where Waledac is seeding URLs that links to a new Waledac binary for this specific spam run, but our radars are actively monitoring for this event. The following spam emails however, are now blocked by the Smart Protection Network.
