Waledac Turns to Cash and Vaccines

by Jonell Baltazar (Advanced Threats Researcher)

Riding on the ongoing global economic recession, Waledac updates its spam messages with email subjects related to earning a fortune through Google cash.

Other spam email subjects we’ve seen so far:

Be your own boss with Google

Earn cash using Google today

Google System that really works

Make a fortune online

Make thousands a month from home

Start your home business today

Use Google to earn extra cash

As of this writing, the hyperlink found in the email body redirects to an advertising link which currently returns a redirect loop error in Firefox web browser.

Another current event seen leveraged on by this wave of Waledac spam runs is the swine flu outbreak, as spammed messages bear subjects that seem related to a vaccine for swine flu."
