Just a reminder to pay attention, people.

by Berck

Jonah got the following e-mail today:

[removed, at least temporarily, thanks to an obnoxious e-mail virus scanner]

I edited the link to take out the evil bits. Amusing things to note: it *looks* like, if you’re not paying attention, that the link is on nachzen.net, and it pretended to come from an administrator account on my server. In fact, for the first half-second I read it, I thought, “huh, what useful daemon sent an e-mail to my users?” before I realized it was malicious. This is a reasonably well-designed attack. I downloaded the file and let the internets analyze it for me. Here’s the report.

Fortunately, since there are no Windows computers here, this would have been harmless even if Jonah had clicked on it, but paying attention is still a good thing.
