    More Targeted attacks - Disguised as official government emails

      A new series of targeted attacks have been spammed that appear as official government business. These new attacks will even download actual PDF forms from the government site to make them appear more legitimate. Users should delete these messages and particularly avoid opening any attachments as AV protection may not be fully available in all cases.

      QUOTE: McAfee Avert Labs has seen multiple large spam runs of Spy-Agent.cf. The attachment callled complaint.zip is malicious. Upon execution the trojan connects to malicious web sites. It also downloads legitimate PDF files probably to decieve the user that it is a legitimate application. This variant of trojan also has capability to download other trojans and malware on the system, for that it may contact the following website :eek:
