Sophos researchers are warning of malware being delivered via fake e-mails from the FDIC.
"Attached to the emails is a ZIP file which contains a malicious payload, designed to infect Windows computers," writes Sophos' Graham Cluley.
"The attached filename, containing the malware, is FDIC_Information_About-your-business-account-JAN2012-XXXXX.zip (where 'XXXXX' is a random number)," Cluley writes. "Sophos anti-virus products detect the attachment proactively as Mal/BredoZp-B and Mal/Zbot-EZ."
