“Image has been sent” scam: Heads up!

In an interesting variation from the scammers out there, be on the alert for an email message that shows up with a subject line of “Image has been sent <youremail@somewhere.com>”

There are a couple of links which if you click on them take you to the malware payload page.

This is a slightly different ploy trying to entice you to click on the links because of the lack of information – you do want to find out whatever image was sent, don’t you?

So alert all your users and remind them to stop and think before clicking on any links!
