Anyone else getting this spam?
« on: 02 Feb, 2015, 17:29:39 »
Anyone else getting this spam? I got it from my own translatum e-mail address... (entitled "Good day").

A search showed a few other people getting it:
"this insane video describes step by step how to get tonns of cash". The site it directs to is fromthehomejob.com.

A report on it here:
Sanesecurity ClamAV blog: zero hour malware, phishing and scams: fromthehomejob com - another scam

Alright, I'll keep this short and sweet.
1. I sent you this before.
2. You haven't watched it.
3. You should, it's URGENT

Watch this in the next 15 minutes
I need to know if you want the access or I should give it to someone else right away.
Seriously!.. You should be watching this already

This insane video describes step by step how to get TONNS of cash!
It's Free, and it's foolproof.


And another one:

You can make $300 per day!

They are spoofing you e-mail address. (Happened to me but with different spam). The best thing of course is to ignore it entirely.

When checking the sender's IP it is the same IP as my server...

IP spoofing: IP address spoofing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

-methods sometimes involve planting malware on the target computer, but I think that's doubtful in this case :)
