UPS and Bredolab Trojan
I thought I got an official email from UPS. Turns out it was a trojan (malware, spyware, virus).[an error occurred while processing this directive]
The email stated that it was from the Parcel/Delivery group of UPS.com, and the subject line even showed: "UPS Delivery Problem NR 63649"
Here's what was in the body of the email:
And that's where the attempt to infect my PC begain... in the attached file (called UPS_invoice_NR5872.exe)
First of all, why does an invoice have to be an executable file? Weird.
Anyway, it's a good thing the Avast! Antivirus program showed a warning, which gave me the chance to delete the Bredolab trojan file before it could do anything.
Yes, I still use POP email, because I don't want to get rid of a certain old email address. Call me sentimental. ;-)
Let's all be careful out there, and practice safe computing.
