    We’ve always known that malware is one big drama queen. A new Trojan pulls all intrigue stops to play scary detective to the hilt as it drives its spread via spammed messages that have these to say:

    This email must have a taken a page out of the assassin extortion scam spam that started going around during January this year. The FBI even got involved as the agency issued a warning against such scams.

    Trend Micro detects this… histrionic Trojan as TROJ_AGENT.AAPN (talk about a fitting detection name). So do not be taken in with these kinds of malware theatrics. If in doubt, follow the FBI’s advise: contact the police or report the matter via the Internet Crime Complaint Centre Web site.
