Hardly detected malware hides as PDF in ZIP, executes through shortcut

Quote:
A new kind of malware tries to infect users through an executable hidden as a PDF file, executed through shortcuts, so far the malware is hardly picked up by anti-virus software. The files comes as an attachment with e-mails, in our case an e-mail claiming to be a bank invoice. The mail comes from the mail address Lila.Pittman@adp.com someone claiming to work at Automatic Data Processing Inc. in Roseland.

The attachment is a ZIP file that contains, what it appears, a PDF file and some shortcuts.
