TrendLabs received samples of stock spam, which have been dormant for about a year until now. The spammed message urges users to buy stocks since they won't supposedly lose their money. Although this scam is not relatively new, its social engineering tactic remains to be effective. Users are advised to be wary in opening emails from unknown sources. Trend Micro protects users from this scam via its Trend Micro smart Protection Network.
