[Newmediacodec.com] Definitely a malicious website. The website claims to avail a free entertainment community that empowers users to create, view and organize compelling and original rich-media content, but actually it distributes Trojans.
The website allows user to view videos online, but the catch is; the site displays a message stating that you need to download a codec to view the video. The download which purports to be a necessary upgrade to Windows Media Player for viewing porn or adult oriented videos on the website installs Trojan and rootkits on the system. The Trojan further downloads and installs additional malware on the infected system.
