"A new settings file for the blah@blah.blah mailbox"

A clever bit of social engineering, looks like Zbot:

From: alert@blahblah.tld
Subject: A new settings file for the name@blahblah.tld mailbox

Dear user of the blahblah.tld mailing service!
We are informing you that because of the security upgrade of the mailing service your mailbox (name@blahblah.tld) settings were changed. In order to apply the new set of settings click on the following link:

http://blahblah.tld/owa/service_directory/settingsphp
?email=name@blahblah.tld&from=blahblag.tld&fromname=name
Best regards, blahblah.tld Technical Support.


The link is a forgery, underneath it is actually blahblah.tld.polikka.eu/owa/service_directory/settings.php
?email=name@blahblah.tld&from=blahblah.tld&fromname=name

polikka.eu was registered just today, the registration details are:

Probably fake you might think, except that "j.k. Droujba-1" is an address in Sofia, not Paris. And it belongs to a company called GE-88 Ltd who have a website of ge-88.com. So, the email address in the WHOIS does seem to trace back to a Bulgarian company. And what does GE-88 Ltd do? Ummm.. well, it appears to manufacture alloys. It could be fake, perhaps their mailserver is compromised..

Nameservers are ns1.supranull.com and ns1.trapsing.net (96.31.81.80 - Noc4Hosts Inc) (although the site is not resolving at the moment).

Just as I was typing this in, another one came through using the domain oikkkkua.co.uk as a redirector:
