The first eco-friendly email virus?
A few minutes ago, I noticed a new infected email landing in my inbox. The body of the email said:
Please find Attached Invoice payment format of Marina private ltd.
Marina Private Limited
Plot No. 544-J, Pace City - II
Sector - 37, Gurgaon - 122 004
Haryana - Bharat
That's pretty normal / boring stuff -- and so was the attached ZIP file, which contained a run-of-the-mill sample of a well-known virus family.
However, what grabbed my attention was the footer of the email, which said:
Please consider your environmental responsibility,
do not take print out of e-mail & attachments, until you actually need
this - Save paper.
Now this is hilarious, isn't it? This must be the first eco-friendly computer virus in the world. A sound indication that the world is going green - and so are the malware authors.
Enjoy the first day of spring everyone! (or at least those of you in the northern hemisphere)
Quais danos que esse vírus de e-mail eco-friendly faz no meio digital?
Na verdade, não dedicamos tempo do laboratório de vírus para analisar todas as consequências uma vez que tínhamos certeza de se tratar de um malware. Obrigado pelo comentário.
