Happy Father’s Day! Have some malware..

Our spamtrap networks have been hit with a new malware attack posing to be an e-card from Regards.com service:


The link takes you to a compromised page on a PHP-based forum site, which in turn performs a HTTP redirect to another IP-based URL: http://206.143.xxx.xx/greeting.exe , downloading malware.

The file is proactively detected as Mal/Zapchas-C by Sophos Anti-Virus.

Father’s Day will be celebrated tomorrow (June 15th) in many countries around the world.  And while this particular spam does not exploit the holiday theme, I’ll keep my eyes open for more sinister social engineering tricks.

Other than that, have a Happy Father’s Day!
