« main.php Malware Lure du Jour | Main | Pizza With Extra Malware »

November 23, 2011

It's Wednesday

So that means yet another installment of "The Lure," a nearly daily attempt to trick email recipients into clicking links that lead to malware installers. Yesterday's story can be found here.

Today is the sad story of, well, I'll let the crook weave the tale:

From: [RandomName]@[YourDomain]
Subject: Help! I'm in trouble!

I was at a party, got drunk, couldn't drive the car, somebody gave me a lift on my car, and crossed on the red light many times, I've just got the pictures, maybe you know him?
Here is the photo

I need to find him urgently!

Thank you

As with other recent versions, this one's links go to HTML pages on hijacked web sites; the HTML page has an iframe element that loads the Russia-based main.php page containing obfuscated JavaScript.

What hair-raising tale will come tomorrow?
