Deep email forensic analysis

This was from a forgotten draft!

This weekend (Feb/2016) I got a very interesting email with an attached file.


First impression I thought it was malicious (Malware, Embeded code, VBScript, etc….), but checking it against VirusTotal I got the confirmation that it was okay. However, it seems that it is a new version of scam campaigning such as letters from Nigeria.

Reprodução: The Extinction of Hackers

   The Extinction of Hackers



   The Hacker community looks at the end of their era. The reason is not
   the always-propagated 1985 type of government, which we surely see in
   many places being perfected. Neither is it the big evil corporations
   hunting down and suing all the hackers, preventing freedom of speech
   and teaming up with the evil governments. The reason is something so
   simple that most of the people in the community would never notice it:
   there is no young blood to speak of. The entire community ages linear
   with the people who developed it to what it is now. At the same time,
   the technology and the respective hacker techniques get more
   complicated, complex and demanding, so that there is almost no chance
   any more to grow apprentice hackers.
