Sunbelt Software Issues Security Alert for Non-Profits

On January 11, 2008 we issued issued a security alert. A new email scam, targeted at non-profits, distributes what appears to be an advance-fee fraud campaign sent from a "Barbara Moratek" of the "Ivete Foundation." Additionally, malware sites are taking advantage of the fact that people are googling "Barbara Moratek," with search results that deliver links pushing malware. According to Wikipedia, an advance-fee fraud is a confidence trick in which the target is persuaded to advance relatively small sums of money in the hope of realizing a much larger gain.

The Sunbelt Threat Research team continues to follow the development of this scam and the malware sites and will issue additional warnings as needed. For more detailed information on the email scam and the malware sites involved with the Google search term "Barbara Moratek" please visit Sunbelt's corporate blog posting at:
