New malicious Storm Worm campaign: American currency
Websense® Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has
discovered a new Storm Worm campaign around the theme of the U.S.
credit crunch. We have detected a series of email subject lines used to
entice users into downloading a Trojan. Here are a few examples of the
subjects we have seen in this campaign:
- The new currency is coming
- Amero arrives
- Amero currency Union is now the reality
- The AMERO currency replacing the Dollar
We have previously seen the group behind the infamous Storm Worm use the tried and tested U.S. Independence Day theme and capitalize on global attention around fake World War III news.
