Air France Flight 447 Spam Arrives with PowerPoint Exploit

1:33 am (UTC-7) | by Adrian Labiano (Anti-spam Research Engineer)

After a blackhat SEO attack, cybercriminals are again using the terrifying catastrophe of Air France Flight 447 or about China-made C919 Jumbo Jets competing with Airbus and Boeing for malicious intent. This time, spam messages are sent with an attached PowerPoint presentation, which is specially crafted to exploit a vulnerability in Microsoft Powerpoint.

The spammed emails suggest that there are images in the attached PowerPoint presentation related to both the China-made jumbo jets and the Air France Flight 447, in order to lure the user into opening the specially crafted file.
