KLONDIKE, CPAWM Headquarters -- This is a public service announcement from Club Penguin Army World Media. Recent reports indicate that users have been spreading a remote access tool (RAT) to users via a direct download link. The RAT is being billed as an “improved autotyper,” but is in fact a device allowing another user to take control of a computer it is downloaded on remotely, accessing passwords, saved information, and other files.
We advise all persons to exercise extreme caution in opening suspicious or uncertain links — particularly if they come from null or unfamiliar user accounts. RATs can be spread by download, clicking a link to a download, or, though less commonly, by email.
Please also note that this is by no means a static announcement; what the RAT is being billed as will change with time, as the malicious users behind its spread attempt to fight our efforts at public awareness of it. We advise caution in clicking any link that seems “too good to be true” — the pretense of sending a user to some type of fantastic new program is the most common way these Trojans are spread. The only users currently linked to the spread of the RAT is Jessie [Jessiehaha], Qwerty (or Q), and Tobercold, but null accounts and other users can certainly also be used as vehicles for its transmission. Exercise caution, essentially, with all unfamiliar users or site links.
This is a developing story, and we will update this post with further information as it arrives.
