Got this in my email today. Its another of a series of “attacks” that are coming from outside the US to deliver bad code into your computer to harvest financial and other information that may compromise your security or the ways that your Internet device verifies your identity.
And these messages are getting trickier. They now use graphics to try to fool you. The link to print the shipping label contains a program that will execute on your device.
This one is from:
Expedited Shipping <firstname.lastname@example.org>
DONT CLICK ON – PRINT SHIPPING LABEL .
See below for additional information about the perpetrator. And last time I checked, USPS doesn’t employ “couriers”. These are telltale signs if you live in the USA and are still uninitiated to such things.
After determining part of the perpetrator address, I browsed to it and was presented – by my updated browser – with the following message. You can see that chrisarmstronglocksmithservices.com is only a pseudo Internet address or one that has been compromised by the attackers.
Another aspect of this kind of Internet and email cybercrime is that it is also very difficult for you or I to tell what is real or phony. Even the above Reported Attack Page! could be phony without a trusted source.
The Beat Goes On!
