BazarLoader phishing lures: plan a Halloween party, get a bonus and be fired in the same afternoon, (Thu, Oct 22nd)

Phishing messages distributing BazarLoader have come to be commonplace in the past six months, but in the last couple of weeks I’ve been seeing more and more e-mails spreading this malware caught in my quarantine. Although contents of these messages differ, their appearance is usually similar – they all contain a fairly long link to Google Docs along with a text part instructing the recipient to visit the included URL. The lures can range quite widely and the uncoordinated way, in which the messages are distributed, can result in a single recipient receiving fairly amusing combinations of messages. Given the current global not-so-optimistic situation, I thought I’d try to share something a little bit “lighter” today and take a look at some of these messages, but before we get to that, let’s take a short look at the URLs distributed in the e-mails.
