Ongoing Email Scam

 
February 5th 2018
You are not alone in receiving those emails
Misery loves company, so it's no surprise that phishing and ransomware attacks cast a wide net. Our sister organisation, CSO Alliance, receives its own fair share. 

They are generally written in an attempt to get the recipient to download and open the attachment, often because the target is confused as to why they have received the email in the first place. Our advice is to never, ever open one of these and instead use our Orion malware service instead! Always be suspicious of emails with attachments, particularly PDFs, unless you are certain of their source.
