E-ZPASS Malware Spam

The malware and virus injection spammers are getting more creative, and it has got me to wondering that this isn't originating from Russia.  Only Western hackers, and virus scum know about E-ZPass which is the transponder system on interstate highways in North America.  Some of the E-ZPass setups photograph your licence plate and send you a bill in the mail.  These guy want you to download your invoice.  Yeah, right.  Here is the email in its comic entiretyl

E-ZPass Collection Agency <>

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.

The invoice can be downloaded here.

There are a couple of ironic and funny things about this piece of malicious spam.  First, it is sent from a hacked inactive site of a Catholic girls school run by nuns in Dombivli, India.  The school is call St. Therese in Dombivli.  Going to the site lights up all of my antivirus protection and Chrome won't go there as well due the virus-laden site.  But if you look at the footer of the email, they have an entry call Phishing Policy, and that is exactly what they are doing -- phishing for your private information.

You would think that since this is a Window virus, Microsoft would have solved the virus problem long ago, but they don't have the will to, or Windows is such a piece of crap that it cannot be done.
