Pushdo author hoisted by his own petard

Today we have seen another aggressive seeding of Pushdo. Happily, it has once again been proactively blocked. The Trojan is proactively detected as Troj/Pushdo-Gen, and the spam message is blocked because of porn rules.


As you can see from the above screenshot, the adult nature of the email meant that even if we did not have proactive detection as Troj/Pushdo-Gen, the anti-spam protection data published by SophosLabs would have caught this message.
