Warning! Fake Virgin Media Bill

Warning! Fake Virgin Media email BillThe latest fake and infected email is alledgedly from Virgin Media advising that your latest bill is ready. Of course this is fake, the email actually comes from virginmedia{dot}smebusinesslink{dot}com and the infected file that you are encouraged to download is stored as so often is the case these days, at Microsoft's my-sharepoint{dot}com website. Again with what appears to be an Australian user.


Of course it is not a bill, but more likely to be a php file that will run itself when you click the link and infect your computer, probably with a cryptlocker type infection which will cost you a LOT of money to recover, if at all, you would be more likely to support criminals and not receive any unlock instructions.

Much better to make regular backups of your data and keep the drive containing the data, unplugged whilst not actually making the backup. Never click on such links in what are obviously false emails.
