BBB Spam Run

Watch out for more BBB phishing/exploits.
Today MessageLabs detected another Better Business Bureau attack targeted at two of our VPs.
Subject: “BBB Complaint Case # (Ref#)”
From: [email protected]
The message contained a PDF file with a embedded EXE.
We had one slip through to our CEO earlier this month that caused some panic. Fortunately the attacker was trying to use a redirect on the BBB website, and the redirect wasn’t working anymore. If the user had been able to follow the link successfully, they would have been prompted to run a malicious activeX control supposedly from Adobe.
