Beware: Bogus Better Business Bureau blast

A Trojan-packed e-mail is targeting businesses, under the guise of a Better Business Bureau complaint.

Security vendor Websense is reporting the return of a bogus Better Business Bureau e-mail. The attached Word document in this release contains a Trojan that, when opened, attempts to download and install a keylogger which then uploads stolen data from the compromised PC to an IP address located in Malaysia.

In March, the Better Business Bureau issued a warning. The new bogus message claims that a complaint has been filed against the recipient's company. Attached to the message is a Microsoft Word document (Document_for_Case.doc), supposedly containing additional details regarding the complaint.
