“msn.exe” download using Script

Some days before i got a website where infamous evil obfuscated  script was used to download malicious file from other website. The script is decoded through the use of eval() function and String.fromCharCode(). If you search using this function in google itself you’ll lots of websites and even you’ll get malicious one , that how i got!.
See the screenshots below..

when you open http://buyford.co.kr/1/1/1.htm …This html page has java script to download malicious file “msn.exe”from the IP, moreover i found that this IP is changing from time to time. “msn.exe” will download a file “test.txt” which is having the address of another malicious file “svchost.exe”. Just look at the screenshots you’ll come to know the story -:)

After decoding the script it looks like this ..on surfing the site  “The page cannot be found” will be displyed while in background VBScript would be run and download msn.exe from IP and saves it as  “zhu3.com” and finally excutes this file.
