Windows 7: Fake Microsoft Outlook Update Installs Trojan.

07 Feb 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Fake Microsoft Outlook Update Installs Trojan.

A malicious spam campaign caught by Panda Labs is using a fake Microsoft Update notice to trick victims into installing a Trojan. While well crafted, the attack still provides dead giveaways.

The e-mail, which Panda posts with a screen shot, is spoofed to look as if it comes from Microsoft Support. With a realistic-looking subject and e-mail body that attempts to piggy-back on the constant (and correct) advice to keep your computer up-to-date with patches, it's a great example of a social engineering attack.
