“Your message could not be delivered”. It’s one of the oldest methods in the social-engineering-for spam-and malware-emails handbook. You are receiving notice that an email you sent has not reached its recipient – so sad.
And of course the attachment must contain the mysterious email. But it doesn’t. It contains a zipped variant of MyDoom malware. (First variants of MyDoom were sited on the 26th January 2004). The attachment has wall-to-wall VirusTotal coverage of nearly 98% (42 out of 43 engines including Commtouch’s Command Antivirus).
