Fake emails- American Airlines

19
Jan
2012

I have come across some significant activity related to spam email messages that are pretending to be from American Airlines. This email misguides the user that his purchased ticket scan copy is attached with this email and print it for use.

The email has Ticket.zip as an attachment contains a malicious Ticket.exe file.
When executed it infects the system with malicious code. In this case the attached sample installs the Rougware named “XP Home Security 2012”.

Quick Heal detects and delete the attached file and installed Rogue security software.
