Scam emails tell people they have cancer to trick them into installing a money-stealing Trojan
Scam emails tell people they have cancer to trick them into installing a money-stealing Trojan â€¢ The RegisterSick fraudsters have put out a batch of malware-riddled hoax emails warning recipients that they may have cancer.
The scam emails purport to come from the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice). The emails - which arrive with the header "important blood analysis result" - ask prospective victims to download and print out “test results” from an attachment that's likely to be laced with a bank-account-raiding Trojan.
