iPhone 3G Email Lures for Latin America
Threat Type: Malicious Web Site / Malicious Code
Websense® Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker Network has detected a malicious email spam campaign that is targeting Latin America. The spam uses a social-engineering tactic that focuses on the hype around the upcoming Apple iPhone 3G launch, due for release in July.
Clicking on the email's links for a "presentation" or for "more information" trigger the download of a Trojan, innocently named "presentacion.mov.exe".
