"Naffco" email carries malware link

Posted by MailGuard Editor on 28 August 2018 12:44:44 AEST

MailGuard has intercepted the email shown above, which purports to be from a company in the UAE called Naffco.

There is a document attachment which appears to link to a malware infected Dropbox file.

“AUH Esam Abu Moussa” is shown as the email sender and the displayed sending address is “esam.abumoussa@naffco.com”
The message “from” address is on a “naffco.com” domain, which suggests that this email has been sent from a compromised account owned by a real company.

File attachments like the one used in this attack can infect victim’s computers with viruses, spyware, and crypto-jacking malware.

All criminals need to break into your business is a cleverly worded email. If they can trick one person in your company into clicking on a malicious link they can gain access to your data.
