Rogueware through Fake FedEx email
Another FedEx fraudulent email is getting circulated on the Internet. The attacker is slowly trying to get more innovative as time goes by. The email pretends to be from fedex.com and presents a convincing reason for the user to open the attached file. The email says that the package weight exceeds the allowable free delivery limit. So you have to personally come to receive the package with the print-out of the invoice copy, which is attached with the email.
On extraction of the attached file, it contains a malicious file having an icon of a word file.
If anyone executes this file on the machine assuming it to be a word file, then the computer gets badly infected. It installs a Rogueware named Smart Fortress 2012.
Quick Heal successfully detects and deletes the attached file along with the installed Rogueware.
