Blackberry Malware

A malware campaign targeting Blackberry customers has been unearthed by the Websense ThreatSeeker Network intercepted. These fake emails state that the recipient has successfully created a Blackberry ID. The messages then continue, “To enjoy the full benefits of your BlackBerry ID, please follow the instructions in the attached file.” That, of course, is an attempt to lure victims into running the attached malware.

The malicious email itself is a copy and paste of a legitimate email from Blackberry. And though the attachment indeed raises suspicion, there’s no malicious or compromised URL in it.
