“Huge” rounds of fake ASIC malware-loaded emails hit Australia | ARN

Malware-loaded emails purporting to be from ASIC are doing the rounds again, with two huge loads dropping over the past two days.

Email filtering company, MailGuard, revealed earlier this month that emails pretending to be from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) were filling inboxes around the country.

The exploit told recipients that their business name is due for renewal, directing them to click on a link to download a renewal notice. However, the link downloaded a .zip archive file, which contains a malicious JavaScript file.
