Pay For Driving On Toll Road - EZ Pass Trojan

We just ran into this nasty little surprise at a client site yesterday. It's a virus posing as an overdue bill from E-Z Pass. The "Get Invoice" link will attempt to install a Trojan on the system. We happened to catch it right away so no harm was done.

It was delivered to our end-user's personal e-mail account on Comcast so our filtering system never had a chance to take care of the issue. We attempted to forward the message through our filtering system and it was denied immediately.

Watch out for this one, it is a very convincing e-mail. It is well built and appears graphically legitimate . However, the English language used in the message is poorly constructed and is the first clue that something is out of place. Also notable are the links pointing to a bogus trojan downloading site when hovering the mouse over them.

Be careful out there!

Dear Customer,

You have not paid for driving on a toll road. This invoice is sent repeatedly, please service your debt in the shortest possible time.
