YesAsia.com is a popular online retailer that sells Asian and Western products. Think of a website like Amazon.com, but with a focus on selling movies, music, and electronics to customers in Asian countries.
Unfortunately, it seems that cybercriminals are trying to take advantage of YesAsia’s popularity by spamming out malicious emails posing as invoices.
Here’s an example, claiming that the recipient’s credit card has been charged for the purchase of a Logitech webcam and a Freecom external hard drive:
Be wary if you receive one of these emails, as the links do not point to yesasia.com but to a ZIP file on yesasia-invoices.com instead.
YesAsia-invoices.com is not a real YesAsia website, and was registered by somebody just yesterday for the purposes of duping PC owners into installing the malware.
You should always be suspicious of unsolicited emails, and please remember to keep your anti-virus software up-to-date.Follow @gcluley
