We have all grown used to the presence of spam. Despite the many detection and verification techniques available to users, unsolicited email is still a major nuisance.
Malspam is a specific type of spam that is designed to infect potential victims with malware via email. This delivery method most often leverages techniques that are also used for phishing attacks with the goal of exploiting the victim’s computer. One of the more popular forms of malware included in malspam is ransomware, which locks the data on a victim’s computer and demands a payment to return the stolen files.
