Craigslist Email Malware

Security Lock

There is a malware attack that originates from Craigslist job postings. Although the initial target is narrow, this could quickly spread as the threat pattern changes fairly quickly. This makes detection harder for antivirus to detect.

This new threat’s main point of infection is via an email message. Most of the time the email will look something like the text below, and will have a Microsoft Word file attached.

“Hey,
My name is [redacted] and I'm interested in your posting.
Attached is my CV.
Thanks
Sent from my iPhone “

The best course of action is to delete the email, and NOT open any attachments it may have.

If you have any questions about this or questions about cyber security and virus threats, please don't hesitate to contact us:
