Junk mail with free USB pendrive loaded with malware
I've got to worry about this attack. My MD was sent a USB pendrive in a box with corporate literature from "Tune-into-it.com". Unusually :-D the literature didn't express what Tune-into-it.com does, so my MD trashed the literature and kept the pen drive for later viewing. Today he viewed the USB pendrive and instantly the Trend Anti Virus found
Now what worries me is was either a,
- A targeted attack aimed my MD.
- A attack against my company.
- or a mass junkmail attack.
- Or Tune-into-it.com is vaild company and have unfortunately been infected with a virus.
Unfortunately I didn't get to the pendrive before it was formatted and blanked by a colleague. Just goes to prove that my Firewall and AntiVirus mail filter doesn't catch everything, just sent it in the post and ask the MD to run it! Simple! . I'm pretty sure I would have probably done the same thing, so be warned!
