Re: Job Interview – CareerBuilder Virus

More and more spammers are tuning into the high unemployment rate with bogus emails that purport to be responding to online resumes.

The latest comes disguised a request for an updated resume, presumably as seen on CareerBuilder.com:

Subject:      Re: Job Interview
From:     <crist.and@novaaldeotahotel.com.br>

Dear Employee,

Could I get an update on your resume? Your cooperation will be appreciated in this matter.

The resume we have on file for you is http://www.careerbuilder.com/ShareInfo/Resume.aspx?DID=J93JSN0382.

Best regards,
Cristian Anderson

We’ve seen this claim to come from the same sender at many different domains, including:

  • From:     <crist.and@novaaldeotahotel.com.br>
  • From:     <crist.and@horizonte.no>
  • From:     <crist.and@centrale.nl>

The catch is that while the hyper-linked text being displayed says you’ll go to a www.careerbuilder.com sever, the truth is these all link to an executable male-ware/virus file, typically named resume.exe an hosted by a variety of compromised servers.
