Lazy BBB / "ACH transfer pending" spam, chillestruct.com and closteation.com

Here's a lazy spam about an "ACH transfer" that appears to come from the BBB, because the spammers have mixed up the campaigns.

Date:      Wed, 24 Jan 2012 13:31:58 +0100
From:      "manager@bbb.org" [manager@bbb.org]
Subject:      ACH transfer pending

Dear Sir or Madam,

This message includes a notification about the ACH debit transfer sent on your behalf, that was held by our bank:

Transaction ID: 471209863177939
Transaction status: pending

In order to resolve this matter, please review the transaction details using the link below as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,
Kathy Quirk
Accounting Department

The link in the spam routes through a couple of hacked sites to a malicious payload at chillestruct.com on (Zerigo Inc, California) and closteation.com on (Endurance International, Massachusetts). Wepawet reports are here and here.

Blocking the IPs will prevent any other malicious sites on those servers from causing problems.
