To be exact it happened at 8:00 PM Ecuadorian time (7:00 PM ET). In just 2 hours the number of clicks grew up to 484,111 clicks. I’d say most of the people who clicked got infected since the initial Virus Total (https://www.virustotal.com/) detection for the malware was only from 2 of the 44 AV engines. The actual detection now is 27/43 engines and the actual number of clicks is more than 1 million!
The malware “speaks” many languages, so when I obtained a sample it was spreading between Venezuelan users saying “¿es ésta tu foto de perfil nuevo?” (Translation: Is this your new profile picture?) It speaks at least; Spanish, Portuguese, English and Latvian languages and additionally steals user account information from: .iknowthatgirl, YouPorn, Brazzers, Webnames, Dotster, Enom, 1and1, Moniker, Namecheap, Godaddy, Alertpay, Netflix, Thepiratebay, Torrentleech, Vip-file, Sms4file, Letitbit, Whatcd, eBay, Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, PayPal and many other services.
