What: US Federal Court Subpoena Phish: cacd-uscourts.com
On April 14, 2008, Steve Kirsch, founder and chairman of the board of Abaca Technology Corporation received an official looking subpoena via email requesting him to appear in San Diego in front of a grand jury. It had his name, phone number, company, and correct email address on it and it looked pretty legitimate. Even the URL to find out more information looked legitimate at first glance.
A very sophisticated US Federal Court Subpoena phishing attack appearing to be sent from the United States District Court [subpoena[.]uscourts.com] was launched over this past weekend. Sent to CEOs only via very targeted and personalized emails.

Abaca investigated the situation and in most cases these emails were quarantined by the Abaca Email Protection Gateway (EPG) service.

It had may have the recipient’s name, phone number, company, and correct email address included in the message. Even the URL looks legitimate at first glance.

3. Look for typos and other mistakes in the email.
4. If the email asks you to go to a web site, treat it suspiciously. Check out other pages at that website.
See if the images on the site belong to the site. You can also use “who is” to determine how long ago the site was created and who controls it.
5. Never trust anything in an unsolicited email from someone you do not know, no matter how legitimate it looks.
