"Scan from a Hewlett-Packard ScanJet" spam 6/4/12

Another fake HP scan spam email leading to malware. This one follows the new technique of putting a malicious HTML (HP_Scan.htm) file inside a ZIP file to reduce the risk of it being blocked, and then it has multiple payload sites to try to get a higher infection rate. Nasty.

A Wepawet report can be found here.  Anti-virus detection is pretty poor at the moment.

The bad guys certainly seem to have found a way to bring more machines into contact with this malware. Take care!
