Lately I've been getting these strange emails. The FROM lists a single first
name.

There is nothing in the body of the email but there is an attachment,
usually with the name E-mail.pdf or document.pdf.

I delete the emails.

Just curious what type of malware this is.

The kind that's going to compromise the machine.

Probably a good idea.

It is spam.  The spammers, in an effort to get around the latest
filtering tactics, have now resorted to placing their spam message in a
PDF file. Open one if you care to.  You remember just recently, their
spam message was contained in a graphic file, such as a .jpeg. Well,
they've advanced a bit now to PDF files.

I have examined a number of the files, and there was no malware present,
only the spammers' messages about the latest stock deal or penis
enhancements.
