Spam loaded with malicious code

There have been recent reports of malicious code embedded in spam email messages impersonating the Department of Homeland Security.
The attacks arrive via unsolicited email messages that may contain subject lines related to DHS or other government activity.
These messages contain a link or attachment. If users click on this link or open the attachment, this will infect them with malicious code and the Zeus Trojan.

As ever:


  •  Do not click on links or attachments in email messages.
  •  Keep your antivirus software up to date
