New PayPal Trojan

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

NEW Trojan directed to PayPal members

I rec’d the following today… As you can see, it is obvious that it was not from paypal.. DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS.. The trojan may be in your computer now.  My McAfee picked it up immediately!  It originated from the following:  DO NOT GO TO THE SITE, Just use your computer file check and see if  “clubrexton” is on your computer.  If it is in your computer, either delete it or quarantine it.  The following is the email that I received clubrexton.net/zboard/paypal/  etc.  I will not put the full site. For those of you that just gotta see it for yourselves.

Here is the email:
Subj: Paypal Update Account
Date: 7/17/2005 12:20:20 PM Central Standard Time
From: service@paypal.com
To: (my email)
Sent from the Internet (Details)

I will not give the details, I have contacted ebay….and now the body of the email:

You have added phoneseller@yahoo.com as a new email address for your PayPal account.

If you did not authorize this change or if you need assistance with your account, please contact PayPal customer service at: https://www.paypal.com/ (etc..I will not devuldge the rest).

Thank you for using PayPal!
The PayPal Team

AS you can see, this is the work of a rookie phisher but it did indeed contain a Trojan.

Good luck and be careful of the emails you open… Do not click on links in emails. Just go to the website using your browser, and if it is indeed an email from paypal or ebay, you will see that you have a message waiting.

Thanks all and have a cyber-sunny day.
