The Malware creator might use the various points of redirection to change the behaviour of the script after it has been deployed to its target, maybe all systems are under the attackers control and he chooses to redirect different targets to different locations. Another possible answer is that the attacker prepared for the loss of access to one of the (most ...

No, it is not safe. Once I saw the same problem. URL is quite good. But check it through you browser debugger. It is possible that some plugins can be responsible for that warning. Check your browsers settings, hosts file. Just for your information visit this link.

Probably only false positive, it happened also before with gmail, facebook etc. This was from 2010 (Opera - Facebook): We are aware of the false positive Fraud warning. Should be fixed ASAP. For now use http://www.facebook.com and not http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo We are sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused..

Just a few small things, haven't figured out the thing entirely. Feel free to expand and comment on this. After we beautify the code, we get: http://pastebin.com/CdZ5BTfj We see: var C4 = new Array(0x3c, 0x73, 0x63, 0x72, 0x69, 0x70, 0x74... And then a function function DC() { var Wb = C4.length, _yu = new Array(Wb), i; for (i = ...

You can't really do much about it yourself , except for reporting it to the police (because it's a scam attempt which is obviously illegal). Avoiding receiving such messages isn't easy, since the attackers are either using a number database they bought somewhere (with your number in it) or they generate the numbers randomly (spray and pray tactic, hoping ...

Try to report it to google. Once the site is blocked by lots of browsers because google added it to their SafeBrowsing checks the site admins will probably finally notice that something is wrong. And it might be more effective against lazy admins which just remove a single affected file and get hacked few hours later again.

You're doing right. If the admin@xx or webmaster@xxx didn't respond, you may check their website and see if there's any official social media, e.g. Twitter and Facebook. To be ethical, use direct message or private message. Sometimes they're more active in social media.

To have the receiver verify the sender and the message, both parties can agree to use S/MIME certificates. You can purchase these at your internet provider.

Every email message has sender email address in the header as well in the message. The one you can see in email client is the one in message, and there could be anything what is configured in email client on the sender side. The real sender address is only in the header, so if you find out how to view the headers in you email client, there should be real ...

Email is a very old plain-text protocol (dating from the 1970s/1980s). Anyone who controls a mail-server can send out mail from their mailserver using any return address (including ones at other domain). SMTP doesn't include any checks that the mail came from a mail server who controlled the domain listed on the From: line. Extensions to email protocols ...

The aim of phishing is to obtain information about the victim, to which the attacker is not entitled. There are two typical ways a phisher would obtain that information: The victim supplies it by including it in a reply to the phishing email, i.e. by sending the information to an email address controlled by the attacker. The victim supplies it by first ...

I think you can safely reply the message. A MX record lookup gives outlook.com as top level domain. Also,the top level domain in mscloude@clickdimensions.microsoft.com is microsoft.com. Even if the email is spoofed with clickdimensions.microsoft.com. Your reply email will not be delivered to attacker. Also, just make sure that reply (reply-to) address ...

Mircosoft Office fileas are actually nothing but glorified zip files. If you change the extention to .zip you can extract the content. There you should find the file word\vbaProject.bin that contains the VBA macros. However, as the extention suggests, this file is binary and is not much help in letting you read the source code. Fortunately Mircosoft has ...
