Chinese E-card Blended Threat Malware


In case you thought all the e-card malware was sent in English or Russian, of course other nations have their say as well. Here is an example of a recent outbreak of Chinese e-card messages that Arik from the spam analysis team shared with me. This is considered a “blended threat,” that is an email message sent out as spam that contain a link (and in this case an HTML attachment) to malware sites.

If unlucky users click the link in the message, or open the attached html and click the link there, they will download the nasty boss.exe malware.
