Warning – New Email Scam: Ransomware Being Distributed Disguised as Receipts

A new malspam campaign is underway that is pretending to be PDF receipts, but instead installs the GandCrab ransomware on a victim’s computer.

From the article:

“The start of the chain of events that lead to the installation of GandCrab is when a victim receives an email with a subject like “Receipt Feb-078122″. These emails contain a PDF attachment with names like Feb01221812.pdf”
