Pushing buttons

This spam is a little more interesting than the usual. I've received it at three different and unrelated email addresses, both at work and at home. It seems to have a two-pronged attack: clicking the included "unsubscribe" link (inactive below for blindingly obvious reasons) confirms that your email address is valid, and also attempts to install a small downloader Trojan, which will then pull down a larger payload, the effect of which I am disinclined to experiment with. But that's not why I'm posting it here.

It has been requested that the following address:

recipient email address

should be added to the communism community mailing list.
You have been successfully subscribed to our mail list.

Thank you.

To unsubscribe from our mail list, just follow this link:

IP elided as public service/subs/unsub.php?email=recipient email address>

Click this link, or copy and paste the address into your browser.
I like they way the sender tries to trigger a knee-jerk dash to the malicious hyperlink. You have been "added to the communism community mailing list".




Commieeeeeeee. Baaaaaaaaaaad. Eeeeeeeeeek.

What a hoot.
