LinkedIn spam /

This LinkedIn spam leads to malware on after bouncing through a couple of legitimate hacked sites, a technique that we haven't seen for a couple of weeks.

The malware is on (report here) hosted by Volumedrive in the US, which subsequently tries to download further malware from electrosa.com/8zvW2XE.exe (a site that has been used a lot in recent days). That domain and IP are worth blocking.
