Hey guys


Hey guys, what's up? Well, I finally made it to start my own blog here ;-) As you already knew I deleted this page, because I thought I wouldn't put much effort to write something, but then I decided that, even when I don't make much effort to write, I can still have a blog, don't I? Mostly this blog will go about ramblings, things that interest or concern me. Whatever comes to my mind.

God bless!

Transaction and Payment Confirmation from Spilo Worldwide is a word doc malware

An email with the subject of  Transaction and Payment Confirmation from Spilo Worldwide pretending to come from random names, companies and email addresses  with a malicious word doc attachment  is another one from the current bot runs which try to download various Trojans and password stealers especially banking credential stealers, which may include cridex, dridex, dyreza and various  Zbots, cryptolocker, ransomware and loads of other malware on your computer. They are using email addresses and subjects that will entice a user to read the email and open the attachment. A very high proportion are being targeted at small and medium size businesses, with the hope of getting a better response than they do from consumers.
The email looks like:

"Transaction and Payment Confirmation from Spilo Worldwide"

There has been an updated series of these emails later today with a slightly changed email:
"The attached document is a transaction payment confirmation from Spilo Worldwide in the amount of $5,377,79. Your transaction reference number is 45763188."
