According to Conrad Longmore from Dynamoo’s Blog, a number of spam emails have been spotted over the past 48 hours promoting a rogue pharmacy site called pillscarehealthcare.com.

Most of the spam emails have something to do with account updates or support tickets. Some of the subject lines read: “Pending ticket status,” “Updated information,” “Pending ticket notification” or “Account is now available.”

All the notifications attempt to lure recipients to the pillscarehealthcare.com site by informing them that their accounts have been updated, that their access to accounts has been restored, or urge them to click on a link to check out the tickets they’ve submitted.

Users are advised to beware of such emails. Also, never purchase anything from untrusted pharmacy sites. The offers might look tempting, but you can end up with dangerous counterfeit pills, or you can become entangled in some fraud scheme.

IT administrators can protect their networks against this threat by blocking the 95.58.254.74 IP address that points to a host in Kazakhstan.

Here’s just one example of a malicious email prompting pillscarehealthcare.com:

“Hello,
