Fake Dropbox Links Infects Victims with Ransomware

 Analysis by: Cedrick Ramos

Ransomware-related URLs are being sent via spam emails by posing as fake Dropbox links. The ruse makes the malicious URL hard to see, and uses the popularity of Dropbox to fool victims. Apart from malicious URLs, the spam mail comes with a malicious file attachment. 

Upon investigation, the malware was identified and detected as Mal_VBSCRDLX.

Users are always advised to carefully check the emails they receive and inspect any attachment before opening it. To prevent malicious email from reaching your inbox, products with good anti-spam filtering and file-checking should be active in your network and computers.
