Malicious Shortcut

Malicious Shortcut is new way of dropping a mlaware on your PC, while the shortcut itself is not a malware, however, it contains a script to launch cmd.exe and ftp to a malicious ftp server and download malware.
The link can be sent by email or hosted on a web server, it is a nice trick to evade your email AV and your Internet filtering system.
