The Malware Keeps Coming

North Carolina State University computers are still at it, this time with yet a different brand name ploy. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Amazon.com:

Fake amazon.com notice

This one is disguised as a shipping update notification. I get legitimate ones of these now and again from Amazon.com, but the real ones never contain an attachment. The attachment, Shipping documents.zip, drew the same 25% VirusTotal score as the hi5.com attachment (including identical malware identifications, but different hash values).

Add a fake Twitter invitation to the mix now ("Subject: Your friend invited you to twitter!"). I think I'll give it a rest.

Time to pull the plug on ncsu.edu?
