There've been quite a few reports over the last few days about how Erin Andrew's 'naked' video is being used to spread malware, with links to infected sites being sent in spam.

Now there's a new fake video codec being spread on Twitter, with lots of different hash tags being used to push the link. And one of the most popular topics is 'Erin Andrews'.

We detect the malware as Trojan-Downloader.Win32.CodecPack.iow
