Internet Threats Trends Report - October 2011

Yes, you read it right! Email-borne malware is at the highest it has been in two years. During March 2011, we encountered large outbreaks of courier-themed emails with zipped malware attachments. In August 2011 this trend continued in several enormous waves with attacks continuing throughout September.

But that's not all that was happening....

Exe spelled backwards = malware - right-to-left override used to trick users
Gap Athleta - Phony orders include convincing shopping list
Facebook friend requests lead to malware - Exploiting the hype
PHPThumb exploit - Legitimate websites used as spam-sending machines
Zombie hot spots - Brazil continues to drop, US goes back up
