Attached is a ZIP file containing a malicious EXE file. The VirusTotal detection rate is a fairly healthy 27/48. Automated analysis [1] [2] [3] shows that the malware tries to phones home to lasub-hasta.com  on (Global Net Access, US). A quick look at that server shows that it has several hundred sites on, most of which are probably legitimate.. but there is a great deal of suspect activity on this server which you might want to take into account if you are thinking of blocking this IP.

Hey , Admin

Your blog decorated on '' Educational Program '' that I entered your blog .From this blog , I learned more strategy about learning . Truly , I saluted your blog . Free installing of anti-virus products of Auto dialer software? Absolutely they can't be as reliable as compensated programs? With freebies, where's the guarantee? If this is what you think, you couldn't be further from the truth. Some 100 % free anti-virus programs are actually better than compensated items. I'm not going to name any names of compensated programs which did not compare so well in tests - but be confident, it's true.

Thank you for your Fairness Blog .
