Watch Out For E-mails w/PDF Attachments

Recommended Posts

Beginning last Friday, a new form of malicious email masquerading as credit card statements containing PDF copies of a statement began circulating the globe. When these are opened, hidden code in the PDF will begin downloading data from foreign computers onto your hard drive.

Adobe has posted a filter upgrade to their site that will screen and filter PDF's before they display. However, until more fixes are out there for this, it would be prudent not to open any pdf email attachments from anyone that you don't know.
