The Storm message has morphed into over 250 variants.
A wide variety of subject lines are being used in the spam campaign, including “You’re so Far Away”, “I Dream of you”, “Dream Date Coupon”, “Together You and I”, “A Bouquet of Love”, “So in Love” and “Cuddle Up”. Attached to the emails are files called ‘flash postcard.exe’ or ‘greetingcard.exe’.
