Sorry, this is not a guide to get Teamspeak working on Windows Vista, more of a bug watch.
(If you aren't familar with Teamspeak, it is a voice communication application generally used by gamers)
On Saturday the 14th an email was sent to forum members entitled “New Team Speak Patch [Link Inside]“, it contained a link to a file named patch.exe hosted on the teamspeak webserver.
So through some social engineering TS users were prompted to download a trojan.
The teamspeak website forums aren't online at the moment stating : ” Our forums are currently not available while we are investigating the recent attacks on our server.”
The second item i'd like to focus on is the apparent Cracking of Windows Vistas DRM.
Heralded as the way forward in computing a recent post by a secuirty researcher has suggested that the DRM can be turned on and off.
While this isn't a massive problem in its self the potential for masquerading malware/spyware is huge.
Windows Vista digital rights management (DRM) is design to protect the operating system from intruders and stops other applications interacting and manipulating core functionality of Windows. A great idea, yet if this problem makes it unto the wild, a program can be told to use DRM to protect it. If this is the case Anti-virus programs and spyware monitors won't be able to identify these programs as malicious and it could cause alot of problems.
