Unknown hackers attacked the site μTorrent and successfully placed there the virus under the guise of an antivirus program.
So everybody who wanted to download μTorrent client was offered to download a program called Security Shield, the so-called “fake antivirus” .
Fake anti-viruses work in a very interesting way – after installation they make PC system scan for viruses, then give information that the computer is as full of them as possible, and their removal requires money.
The harmful program managed to “walk” on μTorrent to two hours, only then administrators found and removed it. It’s not specified how many people managed to download it during that time, nevertheless the users are advised to check their PCs completely once again.
