ESET Ireland detects Irish mailboxes receiving emails with attachments claiming to be “voice messages”, carrying trojan malware.
Just a week ago we reported the Tax Refund email scam making the rounds in Ireland and already it is followed by another mass spam run. This time it pretends to be sending people “voice messages” they have supposedly missed.
The mail is very short and enigmatic:
It also carries an attachment called MSG001092014.zip, which, if opened contains a file called MSG001092014.exe which, if clicked, activates trojan malware, classified by ESET as Win32/TrojanDownloader.Waski.A trojan, which tries to download other malware from the Internet. The trojan contains two URLs and tries to download a file from the addresses using HTTP protocol.
ESET Antivirus software detects and removes the threat automatically, but regardless, anyone receiving such an email should not attempt opening the attachment, but should instead delete the email immediately.
