    .PayPal ‘Notification of payment received’ themed emails serve malware

    Detection rate for the malicious archive: MD5: 9c2f2cabf00bde87de47405b80ef83c1 – detected by 39 out of 43 antivirus scanners as Once executed, the sample opens a backdoor on the infected host, allowing cybercriminals to gain complete control over the infected host.

    You know what? I remember watching a was the same-frecking spam mail..I laughed alot. Cause he misused 'On' and 'in' (messed it up :

    When he died,he was ON the helicopter

    Then his body found IN helicopter) (it was a bit different spam mail regarding to some billionaire's death)
