Researchers from Sophos have intercepted two currently active spamvertised malware campaigns, enticing users into downloading and executing malicious attachments.

The first campaign is attempting to trick users into thinking that they have received a uniform traffic ticket, and are charged with speeding at 7:25 AM on the 5th July 2011. The malicious attachment Ticket-O64-211.zip is currently detected as Mal/ChepVil-A.

The second campaign is relying on inter-company invoices impersonating Beazer Homes, KPMG, Miltek, Kraft Foods, and Safeco. The spamvertised Inv._08.8_D7.zip, Corpinvoice_08.10_N47.zip, and Invoice_08.4_D6.zip are currently detected as Troj/Agent-TBO.

Users are advised not to interact with suspicious emails, or spam emails in general.
