What starts in Iran may end in Samoa

Ivan got an email in that looked like a legitimate order.   In a controlled setting with a virtual computer, Kurt,  Michael and I opened the email and hovered over the link.    The link takes you to Iran.   In Iran, you are redirected to an ip in New York, from New York you are taken to Samoa where an .exe file waits on you to infect your machine.  Ingenious.

Let’s go to New York

Let’s pick up our virus in Samoa!

Be careful and think before you click!
