Subject: Martha sent you a endeny(d0t)hk! Greeting

Surprise! You've just received a endeny(d0t)hk! Greeting from from "Martha" [fake email address]

Enjoy!

[endeny(d0t)hk is a live exploit site. Do not visit it unless in a virtual machine, etc.]

If you click on the link, you get to a website which attempts to exploit your system (the one we analyzed use the now-patched Ani cursor exploit). A link is also provided on the web page to download the malware yourself.

It’s a new technique that one group is using to deploy the "Storm Worm" P2P bot net.
