Once you visited the site, it will resize your browser window to 640×480 and it will start moving to every corner of your computer screen while playing a music video “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.
The annoying thing about this website is that it does not allow user to change the url link or close the window and everytime the user attempt to do so, it will display a message box with the song lyrics on it. So, the only way out is to manually terminate the process of your browser. How does that sound to you?
Inspecting the source code of the page, you will see that it does not contain any malicious code that poses threat to its users. Instead, it is just an annoying web-base cross platform joke!

The malware business simple formula is this:
Where M is the number of idea or strategy in getting more partners joining the business. This could be pay-per-click, pay-per-install, pay-per-play like previewing movie trailers, taking online surveys and et cetera.
Given this formula, it is more likely that high traffic websites such as social networks are at most risk and highly potental for infestation of malware retailers.
A similar case was also found in Gaiaonline.com – a known community of Anime fan and Genesreunited.com – a No. 1 UK family tree and genealogy site. The malicious Ad served by quinquecahue.com attempts to play the swf trojan and redirects the user to a Rogue website. Check the screenshot here.
Now it’s confirmed, as I was surfing my Cashcodec.com webmaster account this morning, I went to “Galleries” page (this contains thousand of links to different porn sites) and noticed the name of the codec it is trying to install “qazcodec4481.exe”. I reckon one of the installer of Trojan DNS Changer is “qazcodec1000.dmg”.
