I came across an interesting (and alarming) post at the Internet Storm Center, and I am passing it along. If you, too, are a Systems Administrator, or a person who is responsible for mail systems take extra note. If you’re not; look out for the following subject lines as they might be bogus.
I am seeing a large amount of spam hit our network that has been successful at fooling our spam filter. The
emails contain .zip and .html extensions with various file names. The subject also varies. Some subjects
that I have seen are:
Your Funds Will Be Transferred
From Jan RIchter (name varies)
The zip file is being analyzed to determine what payload may be involved. You may want to remind your email
users to refrain from opening any attachments that they weren’t expecting to receive.
