Attention German HR departments: You may want to cross off a certain “Eva Richter” from your list of employment candidates. Especially because her so-called résumé actually infects recipients with the destructive Ordinypt Wiper malware, according to a new report. The fake résumé phishing campaign began on Sept. 11 and is specifically aimed at German-speaking employers, Bleeping Computer reported this past weekend. The campaign sends an email that appears to be a job application, replete with photo and résumé of one Eva Richter. But in reality, the photo is a random stock photo and the résumé is a PDF file that delivers Ordinypt.
