Malspam is a classic hacking technique that still proves successful, especially when the emails in question are made to look quite legitimate. The goal with malspam is to get, as the name infers, malware to infect a machine via spam email. Such is the case with a current malspam campaign that has been monitored by security professionals since late June. According to Brad Duncan, a researcher at SANS Institute, the malspam in question is posing as email from the United Parcel Service and contains a .zip folder with both NemucodAES ransomware and Kovter malware.

Malspam has always been a problem. Well written! If I may: maybe next time try to add a bit longer description - to increase the interest for the full article more.
