Haven't got any nice attachment in my main inbox lately, however I do receive quite a nice amount of questionable links which may lead to those. By the time I try them links are already dead. :D

Maybe the macromalware is just a dropper and once executed, it can download the malicious executable that would have a higher ratio on VT.
That would be a logical explanation.

Most of the time, malicious Office VBA Macro's will simply act as an entry to gain code execution on the machine before deploying file-less script attacks or dropping another loader on the environment. Following this, the real payload normally comes into play.

I can try and investigate the attachment for you if you'd like and provide some malware analysis insight. I'm a bit bored these days, it'll spice things up.

Send me the attachment download in a PM - if you don't have it, I'll use the VT link and see if I can find the sample myself.

You changed your nickname again? This one is easier to pronounce. The sample is still in my inbox.

Hello,
Over the past few months I have received more and more spam and in recent weeks I received more spam than emails !
It had become unbearable and I was considering changing my email addresses !🤬
But in the last 4 days I only received 2 spams !
Obviously I am very happy but I would like to understand what happened while hoping that the rain of spam does not start again :unsure:

I also was bombarded with spam (I have Yahoo Mail) And was suspicious they were pushing their 60 dollar a year upgrade, which I want no part of right now, kept sending to spam and also blocked sender and maybe it finally worked?? Anyway, Did you do anything differant?

Well, I searched this--because at first I thought it looked like a legit AT&T notice, and after reading some stuff on it, it seems it may be quite legit. It looks like my AT&T cell phone acct. home page. But we know things like this can be hijacked to phish. But...is the below applicable in any way?


Seems legit, imo. But I would call customer service using a verified phone number from a piece of mailed correspondence preferably. No online stuff to be safe.

@ng4ever did this popup happen in your browser? or your system tray?

Well, it doesn't address OP by name, which is always suspicious in my book, but I agree that he should contact ATT directly, using info from other correspondence as you suggest.

In any case, I would NOT click on that link in pop-up.
