Fake eFax message from “POTS modem 2 ” – 1 page(s), Caller-ID: 1-630-226-2563

A Trojan e-mail spoofed as a “fax message” is going around with the subject eFax message from “POTS modem 2 – 1 page(s), Caller-ID: 1-630-226-2563”. This is especially disturbing if you have an eFax account, as this e-mail message does look like a real eFax message. The tell-tale sign of a Trojan is the attached .ZIP file that when uncompressed is executable file (fax_2342.exe). If you received this e-mail, you should delete it immediately.

The Trojan will attempt to steal banking information, and resend the same message to others in your Outlook contact list.
