MailGuard has detected a new email-borne malware attack brandjacking Enviro Sweep, a South Australia based company that provides sanitation services.

The malicious email takes the form of a fake invoice notification, as shown in the screenshot above. The message comes with a .pdf attachment titled ‘tax invoice,’ which contains a link to a malware file - see below:

The sender display name on this scam message is ‘Gary Taylor,’ with the sender address ‘gtaylor@envirosweep.com.au

This appears to be an actual Enviro Sweep email address, which suggests that Enviro Sweep may have been hacked and had their email services exploited by the fraudsters behind this scam.
