WinRAR and StrongPity

New threat out there peeps. This one is called StrongPity and it targets legitimate installations of WinRAR and TrueCrypt. It seems to be happening mostly in Europe, targeting Italy and Belgium in particular.

The links are on slightly misspelled websites designed to look legit.

StrongPity can totally take over your computer and steal data. Stay safe and watch what you’re downloading!

Oh and WinRAR is awesome. I use it all the time to compress files I rarely use. Hate seeing it targeted like this.

You can download WinRAR here, btw.
