Tuesday 20 June 2006 - WARNING: Virus infected e-mail claiming to come from Ur I.T. Mate Group.
MyTob infected e-mail
I would like to warn everyone of what appears to be a new virus infected e-mail going round the interweb, that claims to come from Ur I.T. Mate Group. After checking the link in the e-mail, the originating idiot that created this e-mail, wants you to download a .pif (executable) file named "Confirmation_Sheet.pif" that according to Jotti, is infected with the MyTob worm.

According to Jotti, only 5 vendors currently identify this infection.

The e-mails I have received, do not arrive with an attatchment, but instead, attempt to fool you into clicking what appears to be a link to the main it-mate.co.uk website - this link actually links to a server in Thialand and points directly to the .PIF file they want you to download.

Those with HTML e-mail disabled are not affected by this. Instead you will see;

Those with HTML disabled (WHY OH WHY DO YOU STILL HAVE THIS ENABLED!!!!!), ARE affected by this and will see;

As I mentioned the last time this happened, I DO NOT send out e-mail unsolicited. The ONLY time you will receive an e-mail from me, is when you have specifically asked for a response to a query.

Seems 211.97.61.61 is also involved with the distribution and/or hosting of this file.
