Brazil: Orkut Phishing Mail Leads to Data-Stealing Malware

by Gaye Ofilas (Anti-spam Research Engineer)

We recently captured a spam email that appeared to be from Orkut. It is written in Portuguese, and translates to the following (via GoogleTranslate):

Problems with your account.

Dear User,

We received some complaints against your profile saying you are “using copyrighted material,” and before Orkut disables your account unfairly, asks for you to contact us stating the problem.

Some information from the complaint:

Your Profile: {malicious link to phishing page}

Report: {directly download malware}

* Please do not reply to this email, follow the instructions in the report of the complaint.

Warning: Your period for justification is 48h.




Note: *We are taking measures in accordance with the laws in your country. (Brazil)

* Please meet the requirements of the report within the stipulated period.
