Advisory: Fraudulent emails,
purporting to be from Delta, have apparently been sent to consumers in
the last 24 hours.
These emails claim that the recipient has purchased a Delta ticket, that
a credit card has been charged and that an invoice or receipt is
attached to the email. If you have received one of these emails do not
open the attachment as it may contain potentially dangerous viruses or
other malware that may harm your computer. Be assured that Delta did not
send these emails and our customers' credit cards have not been charged
as a result of the emails.
These emails did not originate with Delta, nor do we believe that any
personal information that our customers provided to us was used to
generate these emails. We will continue to post updates on this page as
additional information becomes available.
The fake emails contain a ZIP attachment. If clicked, installs a
data-stealing trojan that can steal sensitive personal information such
as user ID's and passwords. Portions of this advisory obtained
directly from Delta Airlines.
