New spam campaign delivers malware
A new malicious email campaign is roaming again and is trying to trick users into opening the infected attachment, said Sophos engineers
A lot of different versions of the email like “RE:Check the attachment you have to react somehow to this picture”, “RE:They killed your privacy man your photo is all over facebook! NAKED!” and “RE:Why did you put this photo online?” are written in the subject line, and the content will change like below:
The email relies on the curiosity of the people and especially when they receive the email from a friend who’s email was also compromised before.
Sadly, the attachment, in the form of a .zip file is in fact the Bredolab Trojan, that once installed will begin other downloads and will trigger other malware from the internet.
