Bogus reminder about tomorrow’s meeting carries malware

Bogus emails warning users not to forget about a meeting scheduled for the next day have been hitting inboxes and trying to make the recipients download malware, warns Sophos.

The emails in question are very simple and, bizarrely enough, the message seems to be coming from MySpace:

The spelling of the message body differs from email to email, making it seem that the typos are the result of someone writing too quickly instead of what it likely really is – an attempt to bypass spam filters.

The attached file carries a dropper Trojan that leads to further infections.

As always, users are advised to think twice before opening attachments and following links contained in unsolicited emails.
