A hacking tool advertised as being capable of enabling users to hack Windows
Live accounts and grab Windows Live Messenger passwords is actually used by
attackers to spread their malicious code. According to BitDefencer, HackMSN.exe
will not only not permit users to recover Windows Live passwords, but will
instead infect them will malware, namely the Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY.

“This piece of malicious code affects Windows platforms. The malware injects
itself into the explorer.exe process and opens up a backdoor that allows
unauthorized access to and control over the affected system,” BitDefender’s
Ioana Jelea stated. “Moreover, Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY attempts to read the keys
and serial numbers of the various pieces of software installed on the affected
computer, while also logging the passwords to the victim’s ICQ, Messenger, POP3
mail accounts, and protected storage.”
