Scammy emails from “Google Pharmacy”

A spam campaign trying to convince users that Google has launched a pharmacy site selling Viagra and Cialis is currently hitting inboxes around the world:

Luckily for the recipients, the only “good” thing about this email is the clever modification of the Google logo – the broken English used in the message and the quite obvious use of a Russian domain name are dead giveaways that Google has nothing to do with this email.

BarracudaLabs’ researchers say the destination URL hosts one of the ubiquitous Canadian Pharmacy websites.

The misuse of the Google brand should not be wholly unexpected – scammers often use household names to lure in people.
