The folk trying to benefit from the Boston Marathon explosion with email spam about the event leading to malware and exploit pages, have reached a new low and now turned to the explosion at the fertilizer factory near Waco, Texas.
New subject lines in spam include:
— West Tx Explosion
— Waco Explosion HD
— CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Fertilizer Plant Explosion Near Waco, Texas
The structure of the URLs in the most recent spam is similar to that of the Boston Marathon spam that we reported recently.
The domains in the URLs are IP numbers and the page has a title of: “Hot News:Fertilizer Plant Explosion Near Waco, Texas”.
The exploit pages loaded are still reliably detected by AVG LinkScanner.
New subject lines detected:
– Texas plant explosion
