    That would be consistent with the Rmoney campaign's level of sophistication. I had to look it up, but having a worm delivered via social networking and the "you need to update xxx, please download the new software" approach would be fitting.

    (this is basically a "social engineering" attack - the attacker doesn't directly break into the machine, but instead persuades the mark to download a compromised piece of code.  This is why you should never ever ever use an update from an unsolicited email or web-add about "windows drivers".)
