Another Email Spam/Malware with “Your friend invited you to twitter!” in the subject


  Guess, now that Bill Gates has joined Twitter as we will see more attacks that are twitter related :(

  The message body on this one looks good and the links to “Sign up now” and “Sign in” are even valid.  It is the attached ZIP file that contains a file named:
”document.chm                                                            .exe”
  Notice the spaces between the chm (help file) and the real extension of .exe (executable).

attachment: Invitation
subject: Your friend invited you to twitter!
message (along:

New to Twitter? Sign up now
Have an account? Sign in


Your friend invited you to twitter!


Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co-workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question:

What are you doing?

To join or to see who invited you, check the attachment.
