The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) reports that hackers are sending bogus email alerts regarding the H1N1 (swine flu) vaccines. The emails try to trick users into visiting a fake Center for Disease Control and prevention website. Once there, it prompts the user to register and create a user profile at which point the website installs malware on the victims PC.
According to US-CERT, tell your employees to delete emails that have the following subject lines:
- "Governmental registration program on the H1N1 vaccination"
- "Your personal vaccination profile"
- Please note that subject lines may change at any time.
