A fake email about a job offer claims to notify you of some job offer like Operations Clerk/Online Office Sales.

Spoofs: jobs | auto-notification | notification | service | message

They sometimes also spoof YOUR domain.

As of the first batch of these spam messages, I swear I see no payload. As in no links to any websites, no attachments. Maybe the botnet forgot?

Check out that last two. They spoofed my domain for the email to me. I don't have a Microsoft SMTP server anywhere so that helps me know it isn't me. Nor do I have a server called mail51.

Links or attachments:

As of the first batch of these, there are no attachments or links! A phishing scam with no punchline. No Viruses.

The Botnet that sent these probably missed a setting. I'm sure we will see versions later with something in them. Maybe the botnet owner really IS hiring.


If this was at least a little helpful, how about a +1, Like, or Tweet?
