"The real ImageShack site is, however, the malware authors are impersonating ImageShack and using (, in particular, which is where the malware is. Once the user gets infected with the malware, Backdoor.Win32.SdBot.eiu in this case, the host joins an IRC channel where the botnet masters continue issuing commands for the campaign to spread"

Scanners Results : 14/32 (43.75%)
Backdoor.Win32.SdBot.eiu; a variant of Win32/Injector.AV
File size: 31040 bytes
MD5...: eef33ca4036a5bf709f62098c55fb751
