Roel Schouwenberg, of Kaspersky said that once the advert was displayed another pop-up appeared in a new browser from "Antivirus8," that said suspicious activity was detected on the system and it encouraged the user to download the program. In other words, scareware.

Schouwenberg said that the hacker went through the trouble of pretending to be this store to get the ad server yield manager to approve and run the ads.
Writing from his bog, Schouwenberg said the hacker went through a lot of effort to seem legitimate. Attacking the yield manager successfully and having fake anti-virus in the ICQ ads is high level and hard to get away with.
He thinks that there could be two fraud gangs associated with the attack - one responsible for the fake antivirus portion and the other responsible for getting the malware to be distributed via the ads on ICQ.

It has about 100 times as much code as a typical virus designed to steal financial information, said Kaspersky Lab senior researcher Roel Schouwenberg.

That means the teams that built Stuxnet and Duqu might have had access to the same technology as the team that built Flame, Schouwenberg said.
He said that a nation state would have the capability to build such a sophisticated tool, but declined to comment on which countries might do so.
