Email with the subject line ‘Business Card’ and no content in the body includes an attached .zip file.
Sometimes, even the simplest of tricks can be effective. In this case, cybercrooks have sent out a malicious email that has no text at all in the body but has the subject line ‘Business Card’. The email includes an attached .zip file called ‘IMG_1670’. The implication is that the attached file contains a harmless business card.
Details such as the supposed sender, the attachment name, and the purpose of the malware payload may vary in different versions of these emails.
If you receive one of these blank ‘Business Card’ emails, do not open any attachments or click any links that it contains.
