Zeus Trojan Campaign Warning
US-CERT is aware of public reports of malicious code circulating via
spam email messages impersonating the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS). The attacks arrive via unsolicited email messages that may
contain subject lines related to DHS or other government activity. These
messages may contain a link or attachment. If users click on this link
or open the attachment, they may be infected with malicious code,
including the Zeus Trojan.
US-CERT encourages users and
administrators to take the following measures to protect themselves:
- Do not follow unsolicited web links
or attachments in email messages.
- Maintain up-to-date antivirus
- Refer to Cyber Security Tip ST04-014
- Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks
- Refer to the
Recognizing and Avoiding Email Scams (pdf) document
for more information on avoiding email scams.
