Farelf Posted December 10, 2012 Share Posted December 10, 2012 Ah, they never stop trying to reduce us to penury and our heirs and successors in perpetuity too. With the "holiday season" (AKA Christmas, ta very muchly - too late for Hanukkah this year and Eid al-Fitr is long gone) comes this fake airline itinerary notification, lovingly crafted to emulate (no doubt) in every detail the correct format of the right regional airline for the delivery area, just at the time when millions of people would be expecting real notifications/e-tickets in their inboxes. This one carries a trojan downloader, recognised so far by only a handful anti-virus defenders according to the VirusTotal test battery: Virus scan results: https://www.virustotal.com/file/acf692cc8f5...87d85/analysis/ The spam: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z5439965422z1...438cbeae2858daz People in the G20 countries can look forward to this one - the gift that keeps on giving for those who actually open that exploit file. Once it would have been only the G7's denizens that were bothered so, this 21st century continues to delight. No doubt the downloder can be trivially varied to continue eluding, most of the time it is freshly-delivered, most AVs relying on hash signatures (which is most of them) and the thing will be re-used with those slight variations, the covering e-mail re-written to suit the local airlines, many times. And the smartphone equivalents, I suppose. So, what other holiday specials are being served up to the unsuspecting public this festive season?
