Spam with Malware Kicks Off Holiday Season

ANALYSIS BY

Chloe Ordonia


Holidays are usually a good time to travel. It is also a good time for cybercriminals to take advantage of online booking and travel deals. We have found spam that attempts to target The co-operative Travel users. The spammed message informs the customer of various travel deals and discounts offered by the company. However, the said message also includes an attachment, which contains a malicious executable file.

This time is ripe for cybercriminals to use similar opportunities to get your information and your money. Users are advised to be very cautious in downloading and/ opening attachments, especially if they are from unknown senders. If you are looking for travel deals, head straight to your trusted websites for offers you can use.
