New Email offers Registration (with Virus Payload)

I’ve received several emails today, all matching the same pattern. The email comes iwth a range of subjected and from a range of senders but the enclosed web link, when clicked brings you to the same html, all located on different IP addresses. The few ip addresses I looked up seemed to be typical home computer users which probably means that they are infected machines running spam bots .

Here’s one – Subject is ‘Registration Details

Going to the link brings up this webpage (it also loads a fake video viewer window with no content):

Clicking on the link will download the file applet.exe which my Fprot antivirus recognised as a virus but failed to identify the name.
