I have an email address that all the scammers and spammers send their shit to and I am pretty used to it. In fact, when bored I sometimes read the dialog used by them just to see how they might convince someone to actually fall for their scam. The latest scam email is from Mr. Ben S. Bernanke himself.... (imagine that!) Its just the usual beneficiary bullshit about a 10 million dollar inheritance you see in all these emails. But tonight while sifting through all the crap I saw a new one (at least new to me) From: NYC Subject: Uniform Traffic Ticket Code: New York State ? Department of Motor Vehicles UNIFORM TRAFFIC TICKET POLICE AGENCY NEW YORK STATE POLICE THE PERSON DESCRIBED ABOVE IS CHARGED AS FOLLOWS Time 7:25 AM Date of Offense 07/05/2011 IN VIOLATION OF NYS V AND T LAW Description of Violation SPEED OVER 55 ZONE TO PLEAD, PRINT OUT THE ENCLOSED TICKET AND SEND IT TO TOWN COURT, CHATAM HALL., PO BOX 117 It also has an attached file called ticket.zip that of course I am supposed to open. As an internet savvy guy I realize that running my tag number will not give you my email address to forward my ticket to. Not to mention the fact that I have never been to New York, or that I have not had a drivers license or driven a car in 5 years. All of that aside... Out of curiosity I am just dying to see what is in that attached file. So I turn to you my Black Hat friends. Of course I am not going to download the file to my computer, but is there some way that I can safely open the file just to see what the catch is? I am just curious to see if they are wanting my bank info or if they are trying to infect me with a virus. Any thoughts would be appreciated. BTW the file size is 13kb if that means anything.
