    A spam that promises job openings are making rounds today, Sunbelt first reported. The spoofed email message contains a bogus job offer that appears to come from CareerBuilder.com. It entices users to submit their résumés to a certain email address.The email message includes details like job description, qualifications, and other requirements to make it look legitimate. Here’s a sample:

    This is not the first time that malware authors targeted job hunters. Monster.com, a popular job recruitment site that houses a lot of curriculum vitaes and contact details was previously victimized by phishers as well. The job recruitment site also suffered from a major security breach, which was the working of a spyware detected by Trend Micro as TSPY_MAMAW.A.

    Users are advised to be wary in sending their contact details because they may end up giving away their credentials instead of getting a job.
