We are currently receiving email messages in the email honeypot which uses PBS, Payroll & Business Services Ltd, for its social engineering technique. The email informs the recipient that the “Fake” PBS Company received an error from the recipient’s bank. Further, it encourages the recipient to open the attachment for other details on the transaction. However, the attachment is a binary file with an EXE file extension, to be detected as TROJ_DLOADER.BMX. This Trojan downloads a Trojan spyware malware which will also be detected as TSPY_CASGRAB.K.
Other details of the email can be found in our Advisories page. Click on the following link:
