US Airways Spam Distributes Malware
The e-mails are disguised as airline check-in notifications.
Kaspersky researchers are warning of spam that claims to come from US Airways but links to a domain hosting the Blackhole exploit kit.
"The fraudulent email presents itself as a check-in notification from US Airways," writes Threatpost's Brian Donohue. "After a brief description of check-in procedures, there is a hyperlink that claims to lead to 'online reservation details,' but actually ends up taking victims to a page that infects them with the Zeus trojan."
"According to Securelist’s Dmitry Tarakanov, the cybercriminals responsible are hopeful that someone receiving this email is flying somewhere sometime soon," Donohue writes.
