Watch Out for "Deferred Message" or "You Have Deferred Notification" Fake and Malicious Google Message

Cyber-criminals are sending out fake email messages(see below), which appear as if they were sent by Google, YouTube or Facebook, with malicious or spam links. The malicious links will take the recipients, who have clicked on the links, to phishing websites, created by cyber-criminals to steal their personal and financial information, while the spam links will take them to untrustworthy websites where they will be asked to purchase fake or inferior products. The recipients may also be taken to malicious websites, where they will be tricked into downloading and installing malicious software like viruses, Trojan horse and spyware, disguised as legitimate software.

    Here's another variant on the scam, only this one is worded so that it looks as though an email that you sent was blocked by their email filter for -- you guessed it -- spam!



    -- Text of Scam Email Begins Below --
    "From: Gmail Notify
    Date: Sat, 6 May 2017 01:58:56 0000
    Subject: Message you sent blocked by our bulk email filter Becca Elaine
    To: [REDACTED]

    Google
    Katie Phillips (Google Service) just sent you a message:

    5/06/2017
    Returned email message.

    Learn more

    --------- TEXT ENDS ----------

    What didn't copy was the big blue "Check Messages" button. Given the timing, I wouldn't be surprised if this was linked to the Wannacry ransomware.

    McAfee Site Advisor also notes potential security risks from the bountymailings (dot) com page (parked domain, malware downloads), so I would suggest automatically deleting anything coming from that address. It's listed elsewhere as being nothing but a spam generator.
