    A new malspam campaign is underway that pretends to be shipping documents and contains an attachment that installs the DarkComet remote access Trojan. When DarkComet is installed, the malware has the ability to log your keystrokes, application usage, take screenshots, and more.

    As this remote access Trojan, or RAT, can steal a significant amount of information from an infected computer, it is important to be aware of threats like this so you do not mistakenly become infected.

    BleepingComputer was first alerted to this campaign by security researcher Vishal Thakur who spotted the email and analyzed the malware. These emails will have subjects that are similar to "Shipping docs#330" and pretend to be shipping documents awaiting the recipient's approval.
