“We are going to sue you” spam campaign

September 24, 2011 at 4:50 pm

A new spam email is making the rounds into email inboxes. It carries the subject, “We are going to sue you”. It uses this subject line or a variation of it, such as “This is the final warning”, “Please stop sending spam messages”, and “A message from our security service”.

Essentially, the email implies that legal action will be taken if the sender (recipient of this email) doesn’t stop sending spam messages. It includes a “text document” that the recipient is encouraged to read through.

However, the attached ZIP file isn’t a text document as it is made out to be. It is rather an executable program that once installed deletes the original file, and opens up backdoors to allow other malware programs in.
