There is a huge volume of unsolicited emails that run through the veins and arteries of the Internet every single second of the day and this particular phish is just one of them.
TrendLabs has received a report that there has been a spam run that appears to be seeded from Germany. The phish claims to be a confirmation email from Apple Store and indulge the user to follow the embedded link where another link to a malicious binary was being offered. The spammed email is in German and was believed to have an english variant as well but all pointing to the same malicious binary.Here is the sample email scam in German (Thanks to Rainer Link for providing the sample).
The binary is currently being analyzed and will be included soon on the Trend Micro pattern files. The offending domain that hosts the binary was also included in the RS Pattern that will be released on March 20, 2007 at 8:00 PM (PH Time). Updates on the detection name of the malicious binary will be posted shortly.
