    Exclamation Airline E-Ticket Email Virus

    I just got one of these in my spam folder and I knew it was a virus when it said they charged my credit card. (I don't have one.) Don't open the attachment even if it says they charged your credit card 400 and something dollars.

    US-CERT is aware of public reports indicating that a new email attack is circulating. This attack uses email messages that appear to be from legitimate airlines and contain information about a bogus e-ticket. These email messages instruct the user to open the attachment to obtain the e-ticket. If a user opens this attachment, a file may be executed to infect the user's system with malicious code.

    Reports, including a posting by Sophos, indicate that these messages have the following characteristics. Please note that these attributes may change at any time.


    The subject line "E-Ticket#XXXXXXXXXX"
    An attachment named "eTicket#XXXX.zip"
    US-CERT encourages users and administrators to take the following preventative measures to help mitigate the security risks:

    Thanks for the heads up. We will be sure not to open it. I normally just empty the box & don't look at it.

    The only reason I look in my spam folder is in case something someone sent me goes in there.
