Malware linked from fake Quickbooks email

Posted by Emmanuel Marshall on 13 February 2018 09:27:34 AEDT


MailGuard has detected a criminal-intent email designed to look like a Quickbooks invoice notification.

The objective of this email scam is to get the recipient to click on a link in the email that would take them to an archived file containing malware.

The sender display name in this message is ‘We Cart Online Solution’ but the actual sender email address is ‘account@vendorslocator.com

This email scam is quite well designed and is exploiting Quickbooks branding to convince victims that it an authentic notification email.

If you see this message in your inbox, please delete it.
