Examples of Targeted Email Attacks
Blog providing screenshot examples of socially engineered and/or specifically targeted spear-phishing emails, intended to entice the recipient to install trojans and/or malware. These are real emails that my colleagues or I have received, and therefore the examples are generally focused on the China/Taiwan analyst community in Washington, D.C.

The blog is intended as a place for me to post quickly the new examples of these types of emails when I receive them, and to briefly explain what it is that makes them socially engineered and specifically targeted at me, my organization and my colleagues (and the community in which we work). It also covers those instances where our our names and the good reputation of our organization is used as "bait" to entice people to open trojan-laced attachments or download malicious files.
