Trojan.Gamarue.E is a Trojan that is involved in an online scam related to Vodafone. Trojan.Gamarue.E is a malicious component of a Vodafone spam email malware campaign. The unsolicited email spreading Trojan.Gamarue.E is allegedly sent by Vodafone and affects Dutch web users, mainly computers located in Netherlands. Trojan.Gamarue.E can collect confidential information from affected computer users while transferring it onto a distant server monitored by scammers. The fake Vodafone email message poses as an MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) attachment that is supposedly archived by Vodafone. The junk Vodafone email, partially including a text written in English, informs the victim that there's an image file attached which is from a specific 'XXX' cell-phone number. The deceptive Vodafone email message is generated using specific obfuscation techniques so that it may bypass the detection by spam filters. The fraudulent Vodafone email fools recipients into opening the malevolent attachment which, if opened, surreptitiously downloads and installs Trojan.Gamarue.E on the computer by corrupting the PC. Trojan.Gamarue.E may also drop and execute random files after installing itself on the targeted computer system. Trojan.Gamarue.E is able to proliferate onto detachable drives such as Universal Serial Bus (USB).
