ADP Invoice – PDF malware — 1 Comment

  1. I think the best way to handle these, given the power of a typical laptop or desktop, is to open them first (or maybe only?) in a Linux virtual machine with a shared folder to your desktop OS. This way, you can verify that the pdf is legitimate and for services/products rendered. Most malware of this type will not execute in a LInux environment, but just to be safe don’t use that VM for any other purpose, reset it periodically and make sure it cannot see any network links. If it can’t see the Internet, it will never get it’s nefarious work done.
