What an Internet Provider should be.

BareMetal: Virus Alerts;

The following are all examples of virii or the recent virus outbreak. They are all examples of messages that should go in the "just delete" classification.

March 16th: we've done a substantial update to the virus scanning software and it's configuration. With this and virus signatures which are updated every 2 hours, we should be blocking almost all of these. Please keep us informed of anything getting through. -Tom



Dear  user of  e-mail server "Baremetal.com",

Our main mailing server will be  temporary  unavaible for  next two  days,
to continue  receiving  mail  in these  days you  have to configure our free
auto-forwarding  service.

Further details can be obtained from attached file.

For security reasons attached file  is password  protected.  The  password  is
"66138".



Subject: Important notify about your e-mail account.

Dear user of  "Example.com" mailing  system,

Our antivirus software  has detected a large ammount of viruses  outgoing
from your  email account, you may  use our free anti-virus tool to  clean  up
your  computer software.

Dear user of Baremetal.com,

Some of our clients  complained  about the spam (negative  e-mail  content)
outgoing  from your e-mail account. Probably, you have  been infected  by
a proxy-relay trojan server. In order to keep your computer safe,
follow the instructions.

Advanced  details can be found in attached file.

For security purposes the attached file is password protected. Password is
"11763".




Subject: BM-186230 Warning about your e-mail account.

Dear user of  Baremetal.com gateway e-mail server,

Your  e-mail account has been temporary  disabled  because  of  unauthorized access.

Please,  read the attach for further details.

For security reasons  attached file is  password protected.  The  password  is
"28350".


This one is a little different, but follows the same social engineering pattern:

Dear  user, the management  of Example.ca mailing  system  wants to let
you know  that,

Your e-mail account has been  temporary disabled because of unauthorized
access.

For details see the  attached file.


Hopefully that is enough to give you the idea, and you can recognize similar but different messages. The most common thread is that password "protected" zip files are being used to hide the virus from the virus scanner.
