We've received a report of a spammed email with a hyperlink that ultimately attempts to install malware. The email is targeting Austrailians, the email references a heart attack that the Prime Minister has suffered, of course no such heart attack has occurred.
The email tells the reader to go to Australia's "The Australian - keeping the nation informed" website but the link is not for the real "The Australian" website. The bogus link is to austr-news.c_oh_m.
Thanks for the report Eric!
AusCERT has issued an alert with additional details including the following malicious sites linked in variants of the email attack;
